Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) protein detection in infected Vero E6 and CD4+ T cells. To detect SARS-CoV-2 protein expression, we infected Vero E6 and CD4+ T cells with SARS-CoV-2 at a multiplicity of infection of 0.1 for 24 h. We immunostained these cells and observed them by using fluorescent microscopy. A) SARS-CoV-2–infected and immunostained Vero E6 cells. B) SARS-CoV-2–infected and immunostained CD4+ T cells. For panels A and B, cells were stained by using an

We immunostained these cells and observed them by using fluorescent microscopy. A) SARS-CoV-2–infected and immunostained Vero E6 cells. B) SARS-CoV-2–infected and immunostained CD4+ T cells. For panels A and B, cells were stained by using an antibody cocktail consisting of SARS-CoV-2 S1 antibody, SARS-CoV-2 N antibody, and diluted serum from a recovered coronavirus disease patient. C) SARS-CoV-2 infected CD4+ T cells immunostained with SARS-CoV-2 S1 antibody (anti-S). Scale bars indicate 400 μm; original magnification ×10.
