Panels A-D. Relative mRNA expression of MCP-1 (A), CD36 (B), ICAM-1 (C) and ABCA1 (D) in CD14 monocytes isolated from healthy donors, HIV-infected and HAART-treated HIV-infected patients. All values were normalized to relative expression of 18S mRNA and are expressed relatively to the expression of each gene in healthy donors. Analysis was carried out in triplicate (n=8 subjects / group). *P<0.05 versus healthy donors. #P<0.05 versus HIV-infected patients by ANOVA. Panels E-G. HIV positive patients but not healthy donors showed a significant correlation between mRNA levels of CD36 and PPARγ. R, correlation coefficient; P, P value.
