It is well documented that placental macrophages show lower levels of HIV-1 infection than monocyte-derived macrophages (MDM). We used proteomic methods to test the hypothesis that placental macrophages secrete different proteins as compared to MDM that may contribute to decreased HIV-1 replication. Placental macrophages and MDM were cultured for 12 days and supernatant was collected. To characterize supernatants, the protein profiles of placental macrophages and MDM were compared using the… CONTINUE READING
