    Abstract

    To define features of the B cell response to HIV that may be translated to vaccine development, we have isolated a panel of monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) from HIV-infected patients. These MAbs are all highly reactive to HIV envelope (Env) from multiple clades, and include gp120 and gp41 specificities. Three of the MAbs exhibit substantial homology to previously described VH1-69, VH3-30, and VH4-59 HIV broadly neutralizing antibody lineages. An inherently autoreactive VH4-34 encoded MAb was reactive to diverse Env despite its minimal mutation from germline. Its isolation is consistent with our previous observation of increased VH4-34 + antibodies in HIV-infected patients. These results suggest that conserved developmental processes contribute to immunoglobulin repertoire usage and maturation in response to HIV Env and that intrinsically autoreactive VH genes, despite the absence of mutation, could serve as effective templates for maturation and development of protective antibodies. These results also bear significant implications for the development of immunogens.
