Comparison of the cytokine kinetics of HIV-specific mRNA and protein induction.

1×106 peripheral blood mononuclear cell samples from 4 HIV infected individuals were incubated with HIV CD8+ T cell HIV optimized epitope antigen e (HIV epitope pool) and mRNA and protein induction assayed via qPCR and CBA respectively. Bars represent median values with lines showing interquartile ranges measuring HIV-specific IFNγ (a), TNFα (b) and IL-2 (c) mRNA and protein induction kinetics are shown. Background levels of protein have been subtracted from reported values above.
