Recombinant nucleocapsid protein is potentially an inexpensive, effective serodiagnostic reagent for infectious bronchitis virus.


The nucleocapsid protein of the Gray strain of infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) is highly immunogenic and cross-reactive among various distinct serotypes. Recombinant nucleocapsid polypeptide expressed in bacteria with a histidine tag at the amino terminus has been used as antigen for developing an assay to detect IBV-specific antibody. This fusion protein… (More)
