This PDF file includes:

  • Fig. S1. Multiple alignment of different Env (120–204) and partial V2 sequences (160–183).
  • Fig. S2. Cocrystal structure of HIV-1 gp120 (red) binding to CD4 (green) and the Fab of mAb 17b (blue) (23).
  • Table S1. Odds ratios for two-way interaction analysis of HLA class II alleles with Env-specific IgA and Env (120–204)–specific IgG.
  • Table S2. Association between Env-specific IgA or Env (120–204)–specific IgG and HLA class II alleles present in more than 5% of the study population.
  • Table S3. High IgG binding to multiple Env (120–204) antigens correlates with presence of DPB1*13 and is associated with decreased HIV-1 acquisition across
    multiple subtypes.
  • Table S4. IgG responses to five overlapping peptides spanning Env (120–204) were significantly associated with presence of DPB1*13.
  • Table S5. Comparison of frequency of amino acid (AA) sites in Env-gp70 in RV144 breakthrough infections stratified by DPB1*13.
  • Table S6. Odds ratios for IgA binding to different recombinant Env proteins on HIV-1 acquisition after stratification by absence or presence of HLA-DQB1*06.
  • Table S7. Odds ratios for HIV-1 acquisition in univariate analyses of all HLA class II alleles present in the placebo controls.
  • Table S8. Odds ratios for HIV-1 acquisition in univariate analyses of all HLA class II alleles present in the vaccinated volunteers.
