prevalence and genetic diversity of simian immunodeficiency virus infection in wild-living red colobus monkeys (piliocolobus badius badius) from the taï forest, côte d'ivoire sivwrc in wild-living western red colobus monkeys.numerous african primates are infected with simian immunodeficiency viruses (sivs). it is now well established that the clade of sivs infecting west-central african chimpanzees (pan troglodytes troglodytes) and western gorillas (gorilla gorilla gorilla) represent the progenitors of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (hiv-1), whereas hiv-2 results from different cross-species transmissions of sivsmm from sooty mangabeys (cercocebus atys atys). we present here the first molecular epidemiological ...200817916449
simian immunodeficiency virus infection in free-ranging sooty mangabeys (cercocebus atys atys) from the taï forest, côte d'ivoire: implications for the origin of epidemic human immunodeficiency virus type 2.simian immunodeficiency virus of sooty mangabeys (sivsmm) is recognized as the progenitor of human immunodeficiency virus type 2 (hiv-2) and has been transmitted to humans on multiple occasions, yet the epidemiology and genetic diversity of sivsmm infection in wild-living populations remain largely unknown. here, we report the first molecular epidemiological survey of sivsmm in a community of approximately 120 free-ranging sooty mangabeys in the taï forest, côte d'ivoire. fecal samples (n = 39) ...200516160179
