Monoclonal antibodies for detection and differentiation of potyviruses
What is it about?
Creation and utilization of monoclonal antibodies to detect and differentiate potyviruses. A panel of monoclonal antibodies raised against a mixture of various potyviruses yielded a diverse spectrum of reactivities, from highly cross-reactive, to virus-specific, to one antibody specific for a particular strain of bean yellow mosaic virus
Why is it important?
These antibodies have utility for the sensitive detection of different potyviruses, and are valuable for the rapid screening of plants to determine whether there is a potyvirus infection present. The antibody with broadest cross-reactivity has been used worldwide for viral diagnostics in a variety of formats.
