Which one?

Feb 15, 2009

The HIV is a retrovirus. Please can you tell me what sub-family it belongs to (Oncovirinae, Lentivirinae or spumavirinae)? Also, can you direct me to a website or study where I can see the electron microscopy of the HIV virus and not the computerised or artist's impression? Thank you

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Retroviridae - Orthoretroviridae (subfamily) - Lentiviruses - HIV.

Try this:

False positive elisa in a pregnant mother twice; how to determine the etiology
Homozygous for Delta32 CCR5
