a novel simian immunodeficiency virus from black mangabey (lophocebus aterrimus) in the democratic republic of order to understand primate lentivirus evolution, characterization of additional simian immunodeficiency virus (siv) strains is essential. here, an siv from a black mangabey (lophocebus aterrimus) originating from the democratic republic of congo was analysed phylogenetically. the monkey had cross-reactive antibodies against human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (hiv-1) and hiv-2. the viral pol region sequence was amplified by nested pcr and sequence analysis confirmed that it was related to kn ...200515958675
direct inoculation of simian immunodeficiency virus from sooty mangabeys in black mangabeys (lophocebus aterrimus): first evidence of aids in a heterologous african species and different pathologic outcomes of experimental infection.a unique opportunity for the study of the role of serial passage and cross-species transmission was offered by a series of experiments carried out at the tulane national primate research center in 1990. to develop an animal model for leprosy, three black mangabeys (bkms) (lophocebus aterrimus) were inoculated with lepromatous tissue that had been serially passaged in four sooty mangabeys (sms) (cercocebus atys). all three bkms became infected with simian immunodeficiency virus from sms (sivsm) b ...200415479792
