Identification of epitopes in cucumber mosaic virus using a phage-displayed random peptide library.


Antigenic sites in the cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) coat protein (CP) have been identified using a polyclonal antiserum prepared against glutaraldehyde-fixed virions. Antibodies were used to screen a random peptide library of heptamers displayed on the surface of a bacteriophage. Eight of 36 (22%) sequenced phage clones had inserts resembling a putative… (More)
