Caveolin-1 is not required for CVS-11 entry. a Caveolin-1(Cav1) knockdown was determined by RT-qPCR. b siCtrl- or siCav1- transfected cells were infected with CVS-11 (MOI 0.1, 0.5, 1). At 24 h p.i., the cells were lysed to determine RABV N RNA copy numbers by RT-qPCR. c, d Results are presented as the means ± SD of data from three independent experiments. Effect of Cav1 knockdown on CVS-11 infectivity was determined by western blot at 48 h p.i. with anti-RABV, anti-Cav1 and GAPDH antibodies (c). Relative protein levels were analyzed by using ImageJ (d). Student’s t test, p < 0.05 (*); p < 0.01 (**); p < 0.001 (***)
