From: Zika virus transmission to mouse ear by mosquito bite: a laboratory model that replicates the natural transmission process

Fig. 4

Light microscopy of uninfected and ZIKV-infected C6/36 cell monolayers. The uninfected C6/36 cells are regularly disposed in monolayer covering the entire culture plate (a). Distinctly, the C6/36 monolayers that were cultivated following inoculation with ZIKV-infected SGs are showing adjacent cells forming syncytia with empty areas on the culture plate (b), structural effect caused by ZIKV invasion of the cells. Numbers of ZIKV cDNA copies in C636 cells infected with SGs, mouse ear homogenates and mosquitoes intrathoracically injected (c). Scale-bars: 50 μm
