aDNA was extracted from a subset of seropositive (pos), indeterminant (ind) and negative (neg) blood samples and subjected to nested PCR amplification by using HIV/SIV consensus pol primer pairs. In each column, the number of PCR-positive samples per total number of samples tested is indicated. The authenticity of all amplification products was confirmed by sequence analysis.
