Analysis by ELISA and Western blotting of antibody reactivities in cattle infected with Mycobacterium paratuberculosis after absorption of serum with M phlei.


Preabsorption of cattle serum with Mycobacterium phlei was of value in eliminating falsely positive reactions in an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the detection of antibodies against M paratuberculosis. Specific antibody titres from 16 animals naturally infected with M paratuberculosis were unaffected by absorption. Analysis by Western… (More)
