A higher mRNA expression of TLR2, TLR7 and TLR8 were induced in MDMs infection with EV71. The mRNA expression of TLR2, TLR3, TLR4, TLR6, TLR7, TLR8, TLR9, TLR10, RIG-1 and MDA-5 were performed by SYBR green real-time RT-PCR. The relative change of mRNA expression was analyzed using △△CT method. To standardize results for variability in cDNA quantity, we expressed them with target gene/β-actin as 1 in mock at 6-h POI. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM from eight independent experiments performed in triplicates (*, P < 0.05 and **, P < 0.01).
