Core Tip We have previously shown that, in our study population, distribution of hepatitis B virus (HBV) sub-genotypes A1 and A2 is highly biased in the serum/plasma and peripheral blood leukocyte (PBL) com-partments respectively. Analysing the predicted base pairing patterns of pregenomic RNAs (pgRNAs), specific for HBV subgenotype A1 and A2, we demonstrate that the potent immune escape mutation G145R evolves specifically in the context of HBV subgenotype A2. The PBL compartment is exposed to strong anti-HBs immunity, and thus G145R is highly advantageous for the virus to persist. This explains the exclusive pre-ponderance of subgenotype A2 in the PBL com-partment, sharply contrasting the prevalence of sub-genotype A1 in the serum/plasma.
