Abstract

We report the complete nucleotide sequence of a human immunodeficiency virus type 2 (HIV-2) isolate from Guinea-Bissau (HIV-2). The genomic organization of HIV-2 is identical to that of other HIV-2 isolates but contains a stop codon in the gene. The deduced amino acid sequences of the viral proteins show variation of 20% in the and regions, and 25 to 45% in the and regions when compared to other isolates of HIV-2. This is greater than the variation observed between isolates of HIV-1.
