Figure 5

Red oil staining of MSCs differentiated towards adipogenesis at day 10. MSCs challenged with HIV-1 strains (5 ng p24/ml) or gp120 (1 μg/ml) displayed more abundant multivacuolar adipogenic vescicles in the cytoplasm than untreated differentiated cells. Neutralizing anti-gp120 pAb or p5p treatment in MSC samples challenged with HIV-1 or gp120 inhibited the increase in red oil stained lipid drop amount. Magnification 200X.
