Abstract

Barley mild mosaic virus (BaMMV), a member of the family Potyviridae , genus Bymovirus , is involved in the economically important yellow mosaic disease of winter barley in East Asia and Europe. We investigated serological properties of bacterially expressed BaMMV coat protein (CP) of a German isolate. Ten mouse monoclonal antibodies were produced using purified E. coli expressed BaMMV-CP as immunogen. The reactivity of MAbs with different strains of BaMMV was analysed by several immunological methods that are frequently used in diagnostic virology: enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), dot-blot, Western-blotting (WB), direct tissue blotting immunoassay (DTBIA) and immunoelectron microscopy (IEM). The amino acids involved in the formation of epitopes recognised by several MAbs were mapped by using synthetic pin-bound peptides and the localisation of epitopes in assembled virus particles was determined by electron microscope studies. MAbs V29 and M1 decorated the whole virion indicating that their epitopes 6 PDPI 9 and 96 ITDDEK 101 , respectively, are exposed on the surface. The MAbs V6 and V14 both interacted with 44 LPEPKM 49 , which seems to be accessible at only one end of the virus particle. The MAbs V6, V14, V29 and M1 detected epitopes common to a wide range of BaMMV isolates and can therefore be used effectively in routine diagnostic tests for BaMMV from barley leaves. We suggest that MAbs M1, V6, V14 and V29 are most suitable for use in TAS-ELISA, V6, V14 and V29 for Western blotting and V29 and M1 for electron microscope serology.
