Figure 2

The A120 mAb-mediated inhibition of HIV-1 infection in activated PBMCs from different donors. Activated PBMCs from 6 different donors were infected with either R5 HIV-1JR-FL or X4 HIV-1NL4-3 for 2 hours. After extensive washing, the PBMCs were aliquoted and cultured in the presence of A120 or isotype control IgG at 10 μg/ml. (a) After 3~5 days, virus production was determined by p24 ELISA in the culture supernatants, and values obtained on day 4 are shown as representative. P values were 0.007 and 0.032 for R5 HIV-1 and X4 HIV-1, respectively. (b) The PBMC samples obtained on day 4 after infection were fixed and permeabilized, and then stained with anti-HIV-1 p24 mAb labeled with Alexa Fluor 488 and examined by flow cytometry. The frequencies (percentages) of p24+ cells were plotted. P values were 0.026 and 0.031 for R5 HIV-1 and X4 HIV-1, respectively. Representative data from 3 independent experiments are shown.
