Expression of cytokines and chemokines in lung tissue from cPLA2α+/+ and cPLA2α−/− mice during C. albicans infection. Real-time PCR was carried out using the Mouse Cytokines & Chemokines RT2 Profiler PCR Array to compare expression in lungs of cPLA2α−/− (KO) and cPLA2α+/+ (WT) mice challenged with saline or 106 C. albicans (CA) for 12 and 24 h (n = 6-10 mice/group in 3–5 experiments). *P < 0.05 compared to WT saline control; ϕ P < 0.05 compared to WT saline control, # P < 0.05 compared to KO saline control; **P < 0.05 compared to WT with CA.
