Supplementary Material

Supplementary Figure 1. NanoITC analysis. NanoITC analysis measures the binding affinity of circular TFO to its target region. Dissociation constant (Kd) is equal to 1/association constant (Ka). Supplementary Figure 2. Morphological changes of CRFK cells following TFO RNAs treatment. FIPV-infected cells exposed to TFOs which did not show cytopathic effect (CPE) indicated the inhibitory effects of the circular TFO against FIPV replication. Arrows show the CPE. 10X magnification. Supplementary Figure 3. In vitro antiviral activity of circular TFO. In vitro antiviral activity of TFO1 (A) and TFO5 (B) towards influenza A virus H1N1 replication showed no significant reduction in viral RNA genome copy numbers between the TFO RNA transfected cells and untransfected cells (p ≥ 0.05). Data are averages of 3 independent tests (mean ± SE). NS: not significant.
