The amino terminus of human cytomegalovirus glycoprotein B contains epitopes that vary among strains.


We mapped three antigenic domains of continuous epitopes on human cytomegalovirus (CMV) glycoprotein B (gB) by reacting a panel of independently derived monoclonal antibodies with deletion mutants expressed transiently in COS-1 cells. One of these antigenic domains, DC2, maps in the last 75 amino acids of the carboxy terminus. These epitopes are conserved… (More)
