Mucin-dependent infection of TGEV PUR46. Prior to infection, TGEV PUR46 was treated with the indicated mucin concentrations for 30 min at room temperature. After a 5 min adsorption time of the virus-mucin-mixture a plaque assay was performed. Plaque reduction by mucin treatment was calculated out of 2 independent experiments with quadruplicates. Standard deviations are indicated. Significant differences are marked with an asterisk (*, p-value < 0.05).
