Table 2 In HIV patients, NK expression of CD57 correlated directly with CD107a+ and perforinhi expression on CD56lo cells and inversely with IFNγ responses and the CD56hi perforinlo phenotype

From: HIV patients stable on ART retain evidence of a high CMV load but changes to Natural Killer cell phenotypes reflect both HIV and CMV
