<p>MDCK cells were infected at an MOI of 0.001 in the presence of 1 µg/ml TPCK-trypsin. After adsorption for 1 h at 37°C, the inocula were removed and the cultures were washed 3 times. The cells were incubated at 37°C for 6 h. At the indicated time, the cells were processed for immunofluorescence, and the infected cells were detected with polyclonal antisera to whole viruses. (A) Fluorescence images of the infected cells at 6 h p.i. Fluorescent photomicrographs showing the intracellular expression of virus protein in cell culture. The FITC-fluorescence signal was expressed as the infected cells. (B) Volocity Demo software analysis of the ratios of infected cells according to the Fig. 5A. *, statistical significance (<i>p</i><0.05) (C) Flow-cytometric analysis of virus-infected cells at 6 h p.i. MDCK cells (2×10<sup>6</sup>) in suspension were incubated with PBS or anti-PR8 antibodies on ice. Then the FITC-conjugated IgG secondary antibodies were added. After washing, the cells were fixed and the number of infected cells was determined by flow cytometric analysis. *, statistical significance (<i>p</i><0.05).</p
