VLPs Derived from the CCMV Plant Virus Can Directly Transfect and Deliver Heterologous Genes for Translation into Mammalian Cells

Figure 4

Viability of mammalian cells exposed to VLPs. Cell monolayers of HEK293 (a), HeLa (b), and HK2 (c) were incubated for 16, 20, and 24 h in the presence of 100 VLPs per cell containing capped EGFP mRNA. The effect of VLPs was compared against non-VLP-treated cultures (control). Results are expressed as relative percentage with respect to the negative control and represent the average of three independent experiments ().
