Parainfluenza virus type 2 haemagglutinin-neuraminidase glycoprotein characterized with monoclonal antibodies.


Thirteen monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) were prepared against human parainfluenza virus type 2 (PIV2). These MAbs reacted with the haemagglutinin-neuraminidase glycoprotein with an Mr of 84K. The MAbs defined one antigenic site which could be divided into five epitopes. A correlation between haemagglutination inhibition (HI) and neutralization activity could… (More)
