Figure 3: Depletion of blood and intestinal Th17 and Th22 CD4 T cells in chronic SIV infection of macaques. Comparison of percentages of; (A) circulating IL- 17+Th17 cells between uninfected (n=31) and chronically SIV-infected (n=33) rhesus macaques (RM); (B) intestinal IL-17+Th17 cells between uninfected (n=60) and chronically SIV-infected (n=23) RM; C) circulating IL-22+Th22 cells between uninfected (n=21) and chronically SIV-infected (n=15) RM, and; (D) intestinal IL-22+Th22 cells between uninfected (n=41) and chronically SIV-infected (n=15) RM. Th17/Th22 cells were generated by first gated through CD3+CD4+ T cells and identified by their respective IL-17 or IL-22 production.
