Figure 2. T-cell binding domain responses against membrane, nucleocapsid, spike, and envelope proteins of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, as determined by human IFN-γ ELISpot assay. If the number of spots that correspond to the number of IFN-γ‒secreting T cells/million PBMCs is >10, the response is considered positive. Peptide pool numbers indicate 17-mer overlapping peptides that encompass all 4 proteins. IFN, interferon; PBMCs, peripheral blood mononuclear cells. Error bars indicate mean ± SD.
