Figure 1

Absence of Xenotropic murine leukemia virus-related virus (XMRV) in autism using real-time PCR. (A) XMRV pol gene detection of dilutions of XMRV DNA extracted from infected 22Rv1 cells (170, 17, 1.7 and 0 cells, assuming 6 pg DNA per cell) in a background of 2.5 μg DNA. (B) Typical results for autism samples using pol gene real-time PCR with a positive control of XMRV DNA from 1.7 infected 22Rv1 cells in a background of 2.5 μg DNA. There were no positives other than the positive control.
