Research Project: Production of Monoclonal Antibodies to Swine Viruses

Location: Virus and Prion Research

Project Number: 5030-32000-118-63-A
Project Type: Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Nov 15, 2016
End Date: Jun 30, 2018

Objective:
Develop antibodies to detect proteins of interest in swine viruses.

Approach:
Prepare immunogen by expressing proteins of interest in large quantities by biochemical means or by synthesizing peptides of that protein. Inoculate mice with the protein of interest to mount an antibody response to the protein. Prepare monoclonal antibodies to the protein of interest.
