Norwalk Virus–specific Binding to Oyster Digestive Tissues
|Saliva||No. samples tested||VLP binding*|
*After incubation with saliva, no (–), weak (+), or strong (+++) VLP binding to oyster digestive tissues was observed. For controls, VLPs were applied to shellfish tissues in phosphate-buffered saline/1% bovine serum albumin instead of a saliva sample diluted in the same buffer.
