Table 2 VLP binding blockade by NoV GII.4 variant-specific mAbs

From: Antibodies against Lewis antigens inhibit the binding of human norovirus GII.4 virus-like particles to saliva but not to intestinal Caco-2 cells

  1. a Mean values ± SD of fluorescent cell counts in ten microscopic fields (40X). The blocking of VLP binding to D-Caco-2 cells was performed with mAbs by preincubating the different VLPs for 1 h with the test antibodies diluted to 1:100 in PBS or with PBS alone for the negative control. Blocking percentages are indicated between parentheses
