Preparation of a neutralizing monoclonal antibody specific to serotype 8 rotavirus strains with a super-short RNA pattern.

Abstract

Extensive cross-neutralization tests have identified seven serotypes of rotavirus. Recently, it has been reported that several human strains (69M, B37 and B38) with a super-short RNA pattern carry new serotype specificity (serotype 8). By using the strain 69M as an immunizing antigen, we prepared a neutralizing monoclonal antibody (designated 69M-2D). In… (More)
