CHIKV replication in RAW (macrophages) and CLTT (astrocyte control). (A) With time, CHIKV RNA raised in RAW264.7 cells and supernatants but remained low compared to CLTT as tested by RT-qPCR for E1 (n=3). The graph was plotted after adjusting the background level of the residual virus following the washing steps at T0 (2 hrs PI).
