Monoclonal antibody E5/G6 recognized a linear epitope common to hantavirus nucleocapsid proteins. Using synthetic peptides, we identified epitope E5/G6 as the 9 mer YEDVNGIRK (NP 165–173), in which D167, G170, I171, and R172 are indispensable. Furthermore, all the peptides synthesized using various hantavirus sequences bound MAb E5/G6 consistently, despite the existence of several amino acid variations in this region. These results indicate that MAb E5/G6 is a useful tool for detecting hantavirus antigen in rodent or patient tissues using Western blotting or other immunohistochemical assays.
