Monoclonal antibody raised against envelope glycoprotein peptide neutralizes Japanese encephalitis virus

Monoclonal antibody raised against envelope glycoprotein peptide neutralizes Japanese... Epitopes on envelope glycoprotein of Indian strain of Japanese encephalitis virus were delineated by prediction methods. Monoclonal antibodies (MAb) raised against a putative B cell epitope peptide, reacted with the virion in ELISA and immunofluorescence assays. One MAb was also able to neutralize the virus. The reactivity of this MAb against a Sri Lankan strain was checked, since this strain had a substitution within the B cell epitope at position Egp 153 (G → W). The MAb was able to bind to, but was not able to neutralize the Sri Lankan isolate. The data indicated that the predicted B cell epitope is a neutralizing epitope and may be included in a peptide-based vaccine against the virus. Archives of Virology Springer Journals
