Abstract

We report here an HIV-1 recombinant composed of CRF01_AE and subtype B, with a total of eight recombination breakpoints in the gag-pol and vpr-tat regions. This recombinant was identified from a Myanmarese heterosexual male in Japan and showed the chimera structure identical to recently reported CRF69_01B, detected primarily among men who have sex with men in Japan.
