  • a UV-treated supernatants from nine different HIV-1BaL-infected peripheral blood monocyte preparations were cocultured with unstimulated target T cells and apoptosis determined by propidium iodide staining after 48 h. Apoptosis (*) was observed in four experiments. The values represent the percentages of cells in the subdiploid fraction (Ao).
