It is during these transient conformational changes that new cryptic epitopes are exposed. Thus, it is conceivable that the recombinant gp160 or gp120 oligomers utilized so far for immunization, although identical to the native envelope spikes, may not expose these functional epitopes and therefore will not elicit antibodies against them. From these considerations stemmed a completely new approach to generate broadly cross-reactive NA. LaCasse et al. (14) showed that formalin fixation of COS-7 cells expressing a dual tropic molecularly cloned Env of the B clade at the time they were starting to fuse with the human U87 glioma cells (expressing both CD4 and CCRS) results in a whole cell preparation, termed fusion-competent, in which those cryptic epitopes are exposed.
