Down-regulation of cathepsin and cystatin protein levels in ECTV-infected JAWS II and GM-BM cells. Densitometry analysis of cathepsins (Ctsb, Ctsl and Ctss) and cystatins (Cstb and Cst3) at 4, 8, 12 and/or 24 hpi in JAWS II (a) and GM-BM (b) cells. The level of each protein was normalized to GAPDH. Data obtained from three independent experiments and presented as the mean ± SD. *p ≤ 0.05; **p ≤ 0.01. Representative Western blots of Ctsb, Ctsl, Ctss, Cstb and Cst3 at 4, 8, 12 and 24 hpi in JAWS II (c) and at 4, 12 and 24 hpi in GM-BM cells (d)
