Use of monoclonal antibody against major internal protein p24 of bovine leukemia virus in capture ELISA.

A monoclonal antibody (4H4) against the major internal protein, p24, of bovine leukemia virus (BLV) is described. It recognizes a sequence determinant on the p24-molecule and displays high affinity to its antigen. The monoclonal antibody 4H4 was applied in capture ELISA for diagnosis of enzootic bovine leukosis, using crude BLV-preparation as antigen. This test is more sensitive than the immunodiffusion test and at least as sensitive as direct ELISA.
