Figures & Tables

Fig. 1. Linkage disequilibrium maps of the seven variants in all HIV-infected patients (A), HIV-infected patients with opportunistic infections (B), and HIV-infected patients without opportunistic infections (C). The pairwise D′ and r2 values between pairs of adjacent markers were calculated with Haploview 4.2. The calculated pairwise D′ values of all diamonds were 1, which indicated complete linkage disequilibrium. The number in each diamond is the r2 value, which is shown in a corresponding dark gray-to-white color gradient. Diamonds without a number indicate that the r2 value was 1. No white colored diamonds are shown. Two haplotype tagging SNPs with rs1518111 and 3021094 distinguished each haplotype.
