Expression of AID, IL-4 and TGF-b in B and Th cells from malaria patients. Blood was drawn from 34 patients diagnosed with malaria, B and Th cells were isolated and gene expression of AID, IL-4, TGF-b as well as the housekeeping gene HMBS was analysed by qRT-PCR. a Table summarizing parameters related to donors, B and Th cell isolation and gene expression analysis. b Age of the patients versus number of cells isolated. c Amount of blood withdrawn versus Ct values of HMBS (green), AID (red), IL-4 (orange) and TGF-b (blue). Symbol shapes indicate three different age groups. d Correlation of AID expression in B cells with parasite load. e Correlation of IL-4 and TGF-b expression in Th cells with parasite load
