 Abstract: Infectious molecular clones of the human immunodeficiency virus type 2 (HIV-2) will be valuable tools for the study of regulatory gene functions and the development of an animal model for the human acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). To this end, we have cloned and sequenced a novel HIV-2 isolate, HIV-2BEN. One clone, designated MK6, is infectious for various human T-cell lines and for human and macaque peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL), allowing molecular studies of HIV-2 infection and replication. Since MK6 is highly cytopathic in MT-2 and Molt-4 clone 8 cells, antiviral agents and neutralizing sera may be tested. Cluster analysis of HIV-1, HIV-2, and simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) env and gag genes revealed that HIV-2BEN yielded the earliest node of phylogenetic divergence for all reported HIV-2 sequences. Noise analysis showed that, with the current data, no specification of any branching order can be made among the four groups of primate lentiviruses, HIV-1, HIV-2/SIVSMM/MAC, SIVAGM, and SIVMND.
