Proliferative ability of tetramer-binding CD8+ cells is higher at the site of primary virus encounter. Cells were cultured for 7 days in the presence of IL-2 and Gag 181, Tat 28, or Env 622 peptide. The percentage of tetrameric Mamu-A*01/Gag 181; Tat 28; and Env 622 complex binding CD8+ T-cells was established by tricolor staining, as described previously.
