Four structural proteins of Lelystad virus (Arteriviridae) were recognized by monoclonal antibodies in a Western immunoblotting experiment with purified virus. In addition to the 18-kDa integral membrane protein M and the 15-kDa nucleocapsid protein N, two new structural proteins with molecular masses of 45 to 50 kDa and 31 to 35 kDa, respectively, were(More)
The genome of Lelystad virus (LV), a positive-strand RNA virus, is 15 kb in length and contains 8 open reading frames that encode putative viral proteins. Synthetic polypeptides of 15 to 17 amino acids were selected from the amino acid sequences of ORFs 2 to 7 and anti-peptide sera were raised in rabbits. Using these anti-peptide sera and porcine anti-LV(More)
The genome of Lelystad virus (LV), a positive-strand RNA virus, is 15 kb in length and contains 8 open reading frames (ORFs) that encode putative viral proteins. ORFs 2 to 7 were cloned in plasmids downstream of the Sp6 RNA polymerase promoter, and the translation of transcripts generated in vitro yielded proteins that could be immunoprecipitated with(More)
Previously we have shown that Lelystad virus (LV) contains five structural proteins, a nucleocapsid protein N, an integral membrane protein M, and three glycoproteins GP3, GP4, and GP5. In this study we identified a sixth structural protein of Lelystad virus. The protein has an apparent molecular weight of 29 to 30 kDa, was recognized by an ORF2-specific(More)
