Effects of baicalein against DENV-2 host cell adsorption. Foci forming unit reduction assay was used to determine the anti-adsorption activity of baicalein against dengue virus (A) the respective DENV-2 RNA copies were quantified using qRT-PCR (B). All experiments were conducted in triplicates. The percentages of foci reduction (%RF) and RNA copy number reduction were obtained by comparing against the controls maintained in parallel.
