    Description: Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the leading cause of hospitalization for children under 5 years of age. We sought to engineer a viral antigen that provides greater protection than currently available vaccines and focused on antigenic site O, a metastable site specific to the prefusion state of the RSV fusion (F) glycoprotein, as this site is targeted by extremely potent RSV-neutralizing antibodies. Structure-based design yielded stabilized versions of RSV F that maintained antigenic site O when exposed to extremes of pH, osmolality, and temperature. Six RSV F crystal structures provided atomic-level data on how introduced cysteine residues and filled hydrophobic cavities improved stability. Immunization with site O-stabilized variants of RSV F in mice and macaques elicited levels of RSV-specific neutralizing activity many times the protective threshold.〈br /〉〈br /〉〈a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4461862/" target="_blank"〉〈img src="https://static.pubmed.gov/portal/portal3rc.fcgi/4089621/img/3977009" border="0"〉〈/a〉   〈a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4461862/" target="_blank"〉This paper as free author manuscript - peer-reviewed and accepted for publication〈/a〉〈br /〉〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Notes: 〈/span〉McLellan, Jason S -- Chen, Man -- Joyce, M Gordon -- Sastry, Mallika -- Stewart-Jones, Guillaume B E -- Yang, Yongping -- Zhang, Baoshan -- Chen, Lei -- Srivatsan, Sanjay -- Zheng, Anqi -- Zhou, Tongqing -- Graepel, Kevin W -- Kumar, Azad -- Moin, Syed -- Boyington, Jeffrey C -- Chuang, Gwo-Yu -- Soto, Cinque -- Baxa, Ulrich -- Bakker, Arjen Q -- Spits, Hergen -- Beaumont, Tim -- Zheng, Zizheng -- Xia, Ningshao -- Ko, Sung-Youl -- Todd, John-Paul -- Rao, Srinivas -- Graham, Barney S -- Kwong, Peter D -- ZIA AI005024-11/Intramural NIH HHS/ -- ZIA AI005061-10/Intramural NIH HHS/ -- New York, N.Y. -- Science. 2013 Nov 1;342(6158):592-8. doi: 10.1126/science.1243283.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Author address: 〈/span〉Vaccine Research Center, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD 20892, USA.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Record origin:〈/span〉 〈a href="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24179220" target="_blank"〉PubMed〈/a〉

    Description: Serum characterization and antibody isolation are transforming our understanding of the humoral immune response to viral infection. Here, we show that epitope specificities of HIV-1-neutralizing antibodies in serum can be elucidated from the serum pattern of neutralization against a diverse panel of HIV-1 isolates. We determined "neutralization fingerprints" for 30 neutralizing antibodies on a panel of 34 diverse HIV-1 strains and showed that similarity in neutralization fingerprint correlated with similarity in epitope. We used these fingerprints to delineate specificities of polyclonal sera from 24 HIV-1-infected donors and a chimeric siman-human immunodeficiency virus-infected macaque. Delineated specificities matched published specificities and were further confirmed by antibody isolation for two sera. Patterns of virus-isolate neutralization can thus afford a detailed epitope-specific understanding of neutralizing-antibody responses to viral infection.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Notes: 〈/span〉Georgiev, Ivelin S -- Doria-Rose, Nicole A -- Zhou, Tongqing -- Kwon, Young Do -- Staupe, Ryan P -- Moquin, Stephanie -- Chuang, Gwo-Yu -- Louder, Mark K -- Schmidt, Stephen D -- Altae-Tran, Han R -- Bailer, Robert T -- McKee, Krisha -- Nason, Martha -- O'Dell, Sijy -- Ofek, Gilad -- Pancera, Marie -- Srivatsan, Sanjay -- Shapiro, Lawrence -- Connors, Mark -- Migueles, Stephen A -- Morris, Lynn -- Nishimura, Yoshiaki -- Martin, Malcolm A -- Mascola, John R -- Kwong, Peter D -- U19 AI51794/AI/NIAID NIH HHS/ -- Intramural NIH HHS/ -- New York, N.Y. -- Science. 2013 May 10;340(6133):751-6. doi: 10.1126/science.1233989.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Author address: 〈/span〉Vaccine Research Center, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD 20892, USA.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Record origin:〈/span〉 〈a href="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23661761" target="_blank"〉PubMed〈/a〉

    Description: The isolation of human monoclonal antibodies is providing important insights into the specificities that underlie broad neutralization of HIV-1 (reviewed in ref. 1). Here we report a broad and extremely potent HIV-specific monoclonal antibody, termed 35O22, which binds a novel HIV-1 envelope glycoprotein (Env) epitope. 35O22 neutralized 62% of 181 pseudoviruses with a half-maximum inhibitory concentration (IC50) 〈50 mug ml(-1). The median IC50 of neutralized viruses was 0.033 mug ml(-1), among the most potent thus far described. 35O22 did not bind monomeric forms of Env tested, but did bind the trimeric BG505 SOSIP.664. Mutagenesis and a reconstruction by negative-stain electron microscopy of the Fab in complex with trimer revealed that it bound to a conserved epitope, which stretched across gp120 and gp41. The specificity of 35O22 represents a novel site of vulnerability on HIV Env, which serum analysis indicates to be commonly elicited by natural infection. Binding to this new site of vulnerability may thus be an important complement to current monoclonal-antibody-based approaches to immunotherapies, prophylaxis and vaccine design.〈br /〉〈br /〉〈a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4224615/" target="_blank"〉〈img src="https://static.pubmed.gov/portal/portal3rc.fcgi/4089621/img/3977009" border="0"〉〈/a〉   〈a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4224615/" target="_blank"〉This paper as free author manuscript - peer-reviewed and accepted for publication〈/a〉〈br /〉〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Notes: 〈/span〉Huang, Jinghe -- Kang, Byong H -- Pancera, Marie -- Lee, Jeong Hyun -- Tong, Tommy -- Feng, Yu -- Imamichi, Hiromi -- Georgiev, Ivelin S -- Chuang, Gwo-Yu -- Druz, Aliaksandr -- Doria-Rose, Nicole A -- Laub, Leo -- Sliepen, Kwinten -- van Gils, Marit J -- de la Pena, Alba Torrents -- Derking, Ronald -- Klasse, Per-Johan -- Migueles, Stephen A -- Bailer, Robert T -- Alam, Munir -- Pugach, Pavel -- Haynes, Barton F -- Wyatt, Richard T -- Sanders, Rogier W -- Binley, James M -- Ward, Andrew B -- Mascola, John R -- Kwong, Peter D -- Connors, Mark -- 280829/European Research Council/International -- AI84714/AI/NIAID NIH HHS/ -- AI93278/AI/NIAID NIH HHS/ -- P01 AI082362/AI/NIAID NIH HHS/ -- R01 AI100790/AI/NIAID NIH HHS/ -- UM1 AI100645/AI/NIAID NIH HHS/ -- UM1 AI100663/AI/NIAID NIH HHS/ -- ZIA AI000855-15/Intramural NIH HHS/ -- ZIA AI001090-05/Intramural NIH HHS/ -- England -- Nature. 2014 Nov 6;515(7525):138-42. doi: 10.1038/nature13601.

    Description: The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) envelope (Env) spike, comprising three gp120 and three gp41 subunits, is a conformational machine that facilitates HIV-1 entry by rearranging from a mature unliganded state, through receptor-bound intermediates, to a post-fusion state. As the sole viral antigen on the HIV-1 virion surface, Env is both the target of neutralizing antibodies and a focus of vaccine efforts. Here we report the structure at 3.5 A resolution for an HIV-1 Env trimer captured in a mature closed state by antibodies PGT122 and 35O22. This structure reveals the pre-fusion conformation of gp41, indicates rearrangements needed for fusion activation, and defines parameters of immune evasion and immune recognition. Pre-fusion gp41 encircles amino- and carboxy-terminal strands of gp120 with four helices that form a membrane-proximal collar, fastened by insertion of a fusion peptide-proximal methionine into a gp41-tryptophan clasp. Spike rearrangements required for entry involve opening the clasp and expelling the termini. N-linked glycosylation and sequence-variable regions cover the pre-fusion closed spike; we used chronic cohorts to map the prevalence and location of effective HIV-1-neutralizing responses, which were distinguished by their recognition of N-linked glycan and tolerance for epitope-sequence variation.〈br /〉〈br /〉〈a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4348022/" target="_blank"〉〈img src="https://static.pubmed.gov/portal/portal3rc.fcgi/4089621/img/3977009" border="0"〉〈/a〉   〈a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4348022/" target="_blank"〉This paper as free author manuscript - peer-reviewed and accepted for publication〈/a〉〈br /〉〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Notes: 〈/span〉Pancera, Marie -- Zhou, Tongqing -- Druz, Aliaksandr -- Georgiev, Ivelin S -- Soto, Cinque -- Gorman, Jason -- Huang, Jinghe -- Acharya, Priyamvada -- Chuang, Gwo-Yu -- Ofek, Gilad -- Stewart-Jones, Guillaume B E -- Stuckey, Jonathan -- Bailer, Robert T -- Joyce, M Gordon -- Louder, Mark K -- Tumba, Nancy -- Yang, Yongping -- Zhang, Baoshan -- Cohen, Myron S -- Haynes, Barton F -- Mascola, John R -- Morris, Lynn -- Munro, James B -- Blanchard, Scott C -- Mothes, Walther -- Connors, Mark -- Kwong, Peter D -- AI0678501/AI/NIAID NIH HHS/ -- AI100645/AI/NIAID NIH HHS/ -- P01 GM056550/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- P01-GM56550/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- P30 AI050410/AI/NIAID NIH HHS/ -- R01 GM098859/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- R01-GM098859/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- R21 AI100696/AI/NIAID NIH HHS/ -- R21-AI100696/AI/NIAID NIH HHS/ -- UL1 TR000142/TR/NCATS NIH HHS/ -- UM1 AI100645/AI/NIAID NIH HHS/ -- ZIA AI005023-13/Intramural NIH HHS/ -- ZIA AI005024-13/Intramural NIH HHS/ -- England -- Nature. 2014 Oct 23;514(7523):455-61. doi: 10.1038/nature13808.
