Development of serological detection assays for human coronavirus HKU1 infection and its application



Development of serological detection assays for human coronavirus HKU1 infection and its application



Zhonghua Shi Yan he Lin Chuang Bing du Xue Za Zhi 24(5): 376-379



To express the nuclear capsid protein (N protein) and the spike protein (S protein) of HCoV-HKU1, and to develop the corresponding serum assay for antibody detection. The N protein of HCoV-HKU1 was expressed in E. Coli, anti-N antibody assay was established using Western Blotting with turn-based membrane. HCoV-HKU1 S protein was constructed in the eukaryotic expression plasmids, and confirmed by Western Blotting, S antibody assay was established using indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA). We analyzed anti-S and anti-N antibody among 100 normal adult serum. Expression of S and N protein were confirmed; 100 normal adult serum were analyzed using the established serological detection assay, in which HCoV-HKU1 S antibody positive rate was 47%, N antibody positive rate was 48%, Both S and N antibodies positive were 21%, Both S and N antibodies negative were 22%. Co-detection S and N antibody was achieved 74% positive rate. The methods we established here could be used for serological analysis of HCoV-HKU1. Either detection of HCoV-HKU1 S or N antibodies achieved good results. Higher positive detection rate of anti-S or anti-N antibody was found in the normal adults.
