Polyclonal Antibodies Against Equine Rhinitis A Virus 3AB, 3C and 3D Proteins
WARF: P07500US

Inventors: Ann Palmenberg, Svetlana Amineva, Aleksey Aminev

The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) is seeking commercial partners interested in polyclonal antibodies against several equine rhinitis A virus proteins.
Equine rhinitis A virus, formerly known as equine rhinovirus 1, causes a respiratory disease in horses similar to the common cold in humans. No vaccines against this virus are available commercially and no specific antiviral treatment exists.
The Invention
UW-Madison researchers have developed polyclonal antibodies against recombinant proteins from equine rhinitis A virus. The antibodies can be used for specific molecular recognition of the equine rhinitis A virus proteins in vitro or in vivo using experimental techniques such as ELISA (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay), Western assays, protein immunoprecipitation (IP) and confocal fluorescence microscopy.
  • Studying equine rhinitis A virus proteins
  • May lead to new means of detecting, preventing and treating equine rhinitis A virus infection
Key Benefits
  • All reagents have been tested for efficacy.
  • Most of the antibodies react with viral precursor proteins, in addition to the mature proteins against which they were raised.
