Identification of a novel bluetongue virus 1-specific B-cell epitope using a monoclonal antibody against the VP2 protein

Identification of a novel bluetongue virus 1-specific B-cell epitope using a monoclonal antibody... Bluetongue virus (BTV) VP2 is an important antigenic protein that can be used for the differential diagnosis of different BTV serotypes. Here, we generated a serotype-specific monoclonal antibody (mab) against BTV1. A series of peptides synthesized based on the amino acid sequence of BTV1 VP2 were screened to define 115 AQPLKVGL 122 as the minimal linear peptide epitope recognized by mab 4B6. Using an immunofluorescence assay (IFA), we found that mab 4B6 reacted strongly with BTV1, but did not react with other BTV serotypes (BTV2-24). The 4B6 will serve as a novel reagent in the development of diagnostic tests for BTV1 infection. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Virology Springer Journals

Abstract

Bluetongue virus (BTV) VP2 is an important antigenic protein that can be used for the differential diagnosis of different BTV serotypes. Here, we generated a serotype-specific monoclonal antibody (mab) against BTV1. A series of peptides synthesized based on the amino acid sequence of BTV1 VP2 were screened to define 115 AQPLKVGL 122 as the minimal linear peptide epitope recognized by mab 4B6. Using an immunofluorescence assay (IFA), we found that mab 4B6 reacted strongly with BTV1, but did not react with other BTV serotypes (BTV2-24). The 4B6 will serve as a novel reagent in the development of diagnostic tests for BTV1 infection.
