The use of the competitive ELISA to detect neutralizing antibodies resulting from superinfection with a heterotypic bluetongue virus serotype


, : The use of the competitive ELISA to detect neutralizing antibodies resulting from superinfection with a heterotypic bluetongue virus serotype. Bluetongue, African horse sickness, and related orbiviruses: Proceedings of the Second International Symposium: 617-625

The blocking or competitive (c) ELISA using a group-specific MAb is widely used to detect previous exposure to BLU viruses, but it cannot identify subsequent infection with another serotype of BLU virus. A cELISA incorporating MAb specific for the 5 USA serotypes of BLU virus is described, which is able to detect this humoral response.

It was concluded that there are at least 4 epitopes in VP7 (a protein of the nucleocapsid) which can be used in cELISA for the detection of antibodies to bluetongue (BLU) viruses. The E9 epitope lies within the aminoterminal 88 residues of the VP7...

Each MAb was coupled to agarose beads and tested against the other MAbs and a nonneutralizing control MA...

It was found that the cELISA exhibits greater specificity and sensitivity than other tests because it measures displacement of binding of an MAb to its specific epitope by antibody in the test serum. This has the advantage in terms of specificity...
