Figure 7

Time course analysis of human cytomegalovirus-GFP (HCMV-GFP) infection of IBRB (inner blood-retinal barrier) cells. (A) Top panel: phase contrast images of human mock and infected retinal microvascular endothelial cells, retinal pericytes and Müller cells. Bottom panel: phase contrast images of infected retinal microvascular endothelial cells, retinal pericytes and Müller cells with a fluorescent overlay showing HCMV-GFP-positive cells. Magnification = 200x. (B) A graph showing the number of infected HCMV-GFP-positive retinal microvascular endothelial cells (open bars), retinal pericytes (gray bars) and Müller cells (black bars) per 4 × 106 total cells over the time course of 12, 24, 48 and 96 hours post infection.
