Extended Data Fig. 9: PCDH1-EC1 is required for hantavirus Gn/Gc-dependent entry and infection in primary Syrian hamster lung endothelial cells.

From: Protocadherin-1 is essential for cell entry by New World hantaviruses

Extended Data Fig. 9

a, Capacity of soluble PCDH1 (sPCDH1) variants (sEC1–2, sEC1 or sEC2) to block hantavirus glycoprotein-dependent entry. rVSVs bearing ANDV or HTNV Gn/Gc glycoproteins were preincubated with the indicated amounts of the indicated sPCDH1 variants (0–5 µM, in serial threefold dilutions) at room temperature for 1 h, and then allowed to infect Syrian hamster lung endothelial cells (ECs). One hundred per cent relative infectivity corresponds to 15–20% infected cells. Averages ± s.d.: two experiments, n = 4. b, Capacity of PCDH1-EC1-specific mAb 3305 to block hantavirus glycoprotein-dependent entry. Syrian hamster lung ECs were preincubated with mAb 3305 or control human IgG (0–100 µg ml−1, 0–680 nM, in serial threefold dilutions), and then exposed to rVSVs bearing ANDV or SNV Gn/Gc at an MOI of 0.2 IU per cell. Cells were scored for infection at 9 hpi. One hundred per cent relative infectivity corresponds to 15–20% infected cells. Two experiments, n = 2, except in the case of no mAb (‘0’) for which n = 4.
