siRNA knockdown of 114 genes rescues HIV infection. Infection of HIV89.6R pseudotyped virus was rescued in HeLa-CD4 cells following siRNA knockdown of 114 genes. The y-axis denotes both the number of infectious viruses rescued (focus forming units/ml, FFU/ml; left) and fold rescue compared with the CB control (right). FFU/ml results are mean ± SD.
