HBV inhibited ApoA5 expression through its core gene. a Effect of HBV core gene on ApoA5 promoter activity, *P < 0.005. HepG2 cells were transfected with pCMV-S, pCMV-E, pCMV-C, pCMV-X, pCMV-P and pCMV-tag2B, the luciferase activity was measured at 48 h post-transfection. b and c Effects of HBV core gene on ApoA5 mRNA expression. HepG2 cells were transfected with pCMV-C or pCMV-tag2B, 48 h after transfection, ApoA5 mRNA was determined by RT-PCR. d and e Effects of HBV core gene on ApoA5 protein expression. HepG2 cells were transfected with pCMV-C or pCMV-tag2B, 48 h after transfection, ApoA5 protein was determined by western blotting
