Polarized Caco-2 cells are susceptible to ZIKV infection. a Polarized Caco-2 cells were infected with 3 pfu/cell ZIKV-PR, and analyzed for cellular ZIKV RNA levels by qRT-PCR at indicated times (b) Polarized Caco-2 cells express Axl as shown by western blot analysis. GAPDH was used as a loading control. c Caco-2 monolayers were infected apically with ZIKV and fixed in 10% neutral buffered formalin solution and stained for E-cadherin (red) and ZIKV (green). Nuclei were detected by Hoechst stain (blue)
