Infectivity of retroviral severe acute respiratory syndrome–associated coronavirus (SARS-CoV) spike protein (S) pseudotypes on target cells. SARS-CoV S-mediated infection of human 293T, TE671, and Quail QT6/ACE2 was assessed. Murine leukemia virus (MLV) or HIV pseudotypes bearing either the pantropic vesicular stomatitis virus envelope protein (VSV-G) as a positive control, or the SARS-CoV S, were added to target cells. After 72 h, green fluorescent protein (GFP)–positive cells were counted by f

Figure 1. . Infectivity of retroviral severe acute respiratory syndrome–associated coronavirus (SARS-CoV) spike protein (S) pseudotypes on target cells. SARS-CoV S-mediated infection of human 293T, TE671, and Quail QT6/ACE2 was assessed. Murine leukemia virus (MLV) or HIV pseudotypes bearing either the pantropic vesicular stomatitis virus envelope protein (VSV-G) as a positive control, or the SARS-CoV S, were added to target cells. After 72 h, green fluorescent protein (GFP)–positive cells were counted by fluorescence-activated cell sorter analysis. Infection titers are given as infectious units per milliliter (IU/mL). Arrow indicates that infection titer was less than the detection limit, 102 IU/mL.
