  1. The table shows mRNA transcripts encoding for cytokines as found to be expressed by microarray in Chlamydia trachomatis-infected human monocytes over a time course of up to 7 days. Signal intensity is given as fold of expression as compared with the mock-infected probe. Fold of expression for microarray as well as for reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction data is indicated by '-' (less than 2), '+' (more than or equal to 2 and less than 10), '++' (more than or equal to 10 and less than 100), and '+++' (more than or equal to 100). Gene expression was studied at three different time points: 4 hours pi indicates the very early phase of active infection, whereas day 1 corresponds to a transition (that is, the beginning of growth arrest) and day 7 represents persistent infection. IFN, interferon; IL, interleukin; LIF, leukemia inhibitory factor; pi, post-infection; TGF, transforming growth factor; TNF, tumor necrosis factor.
