immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) infection. We used pyrosequencing to examine variation within three SIV-derived epitopes (Gag386-394GW9, Nef103-111RM9, and Rev59-68SP10) targeted by immunodominant CD8+ T cell responses in acutely infected Mauritian cynomolgus macaques. In animals recognizing all three epitopes, variation within Rev59-68SP10 was associated with delayed accumulation of variants in Gag386-394GW9 but had no effect on variation within Nef103-111RM9. This demonstrates that the entire T cell repertoire, rather than a single T cell population, influences the timing of immune escape, thereby providing the first example of conditional CD8+ T cell escape in HIV/SIV infection.
