From: FIV establishes a latent infection in feline peripheral blood CD4+ T lymphocytes in vivo during the asymptomatic phase of infection

Figure 2

CD4+ T cells persistently infected in the absence of detectable plasma viral RNA. PBMCs (a), monocytes (b), CD4+CD25- T cells (c), and CD4+CD25+ T cells (d) isolated from blood from all FIV-infected cats were examined over time PI for viral DNA and vRNA by real-time PCR assays as described in Methods. Data from individual FIV-infected cats are plotted as solid black lines (165), medium-dashed lines (187), short-dashed lines (186) and dotted lines (184).
