QRT-PCR study of six whole blood immune response genes as given by microarray. A quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (QRT-PCR) study using TaqMan Low Density Array (TLDA) cards was performed with gene expressions given as mean relative quantification (RQ) from triplets of each gene. Analyzed in 18 infants hospitalised with respiratory syncytial virus, subtype B, bronchiolitis versus a pooled sample from four one year old male children exposed to RSV during infancy but not treated and/or hospitalised for bronchiolitis during infancy as exogenous control and with beta-glucuronidase (GUSB) as endogenous control. The following genes (gene symbol and name) were studied; CLC: Charcot-Leyden crystal protein, G1P2: Interferon, alpha-inducible protein (clone IFI-15K), IFI27: Interferon, alpha-inducible protein 27, IFI44: Interferon-induced protein 44, IFI44L: Interferon-induced protein 44-like, MARCO:Macrophage receptor with collagenous structure
