Table I. mRNA expression of inflammatory, antiviral, and innate signaling genes in DCs exposed to F-HIV, C-HIV, and CI-HIV
Inflammatory genes
Antiviral genes
Innate signaling genes
  • DCs (1 × 106/ml) were exposed to an MOI of 8 of F-HIV, C-HIV, or CI-HIV or were mock treated for 3, 6, 12, 24, or 48 h and expression of genes associated with inflammatory and antiviral responses and innate signaling was determined by qPCR. Values have been normalized with mock set at 1 and are shown as the mean values of three to six independent experiments.

  • *p < 0.05, upregulation compared with mock, p < 0.05 compared with F-HIV.

  • –, no significant difference in expression between time points.
