Monoclonal Antibodies That Recognize Recombinant Mengovirus 3C Proteinase


Ann Palmenberg, David Hall

The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) is seeking commercial partners interested in three immunoglobulin class G antibodies that react specifically to Mengo 3C.
OVERVIEWMengovirus is a picornavirus that causes encephalomyocarditis in humans and other animals.
THE INVENTIONUW-Madison researchers have created hybridoma cell lines producing monoclonal antibodies raised to recombinant Mengo 3C protease; these antibodies are designated 6D10, 8F10 and 10C6. This material may be used in the specific molecular recognition and detection of protein 3C (protease), which is encoded within the genome of Mengovirus of the family Picornaviradae.
  • May be used to test for the presence of virus
  • Provides additional tools for studying Mengovirus
