ZIKV virus infects peripheral blood mononuclear cells. PBMCs were infected by ZIKV at MOI 0.1 for 2 h and 72 h post-infection the supernatants were harvested and the presence of viral genome was verified by RT-qPCR. Viral loads were determined by absolute quantification based on a standard curve also performed by RT-qPCR and are represented as plaque forming units per milliliter (PFU/mL). Dots represent ZIKV viral loads in the supernatants of PBMCs (n = 13). Statistical analysis was performed with Wilcoxon matched-pairs test (***p < 0.001)
