An ELISA based on bovine immunodeficiency virus (BIV) truncated transmembrane envelope protein (tTM) was developed for the serodetection of BIV infection. 109 bovine sera (86 BIV-negative and 23 BIV-positive) were tested. The ELISA results were compared with those of 3 Western blot assays using, as test antigens, cell culture-derived whole virus proteins (WB1) and the tTM (WB2) and p26 (WB3) fusion proteins expressed from recombinant baculovirus in insect cells, respectively.
