Arthropod-borne flaviviruses such as dengue virus (DENV) and West Nile virus (WNV) pose significant health threats to the global community. Due to escalating numbers of DENV and WNV infections worldwide, development of an effective vaccine remains a global health priority. As flavivirus envelope Domain III (DIII) protein is highly immunogenic and capable of(More)
The Flavivirus genus is composed of many medically important viruses that cause high morbidity and mortality, which include Dengue and West Nile viruses. Various molecular and biochemical techniques have been developed in the endeavour to study flaviviruses. However, microscopy techniques still have irreplaceable roles in the identification of novel virus(More)
A membrane-based electrochemical nanobiosensor sensitive toward whole viral particles is fabricated by forming a submicrometer thick nanoporous alumina membrane over a platinum disk electrode. Antibody probe molecules are physically adsorbed onto the walls of the membrane nanochannels. The sensing signal is based on the monitoring of the electrode's(More)
BACKGROUND West Nile virus (WNV) has emerged as one of the most common causes of epidemic meningoencephalitis worldwide. Most human infections are asymptomatic. However, neuroinvasive disease characterized by meningitis, encephalitis and/or acute flaccid paralysis is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Although outbreaks have been reported(More)
