We constructed a recombinant bovine herpesvirus type 1 triple mutant virus (BoHV-1 tmv) that lacks UL49.5 residues 30-32 and 80-96, gE cytoplasmic tail (gE CT) residues 452-575 and the entire 435 bp long Us9 ORF. To develop a gE CT-specific blocking ELISA test that is necessary to distinguish the BoHV-1 tmv vaccinated calves from the wild-type (wt) virus-infected calves, a mouse monoclonal antibody (mAb) 2H8F3 was generated by using the Escherichia coli expressed gE CT residues 452-575. Further, by performing a PEPSCAN analysis of 12 mer overlapping peptides spanning the entire gE CT, the epitope sequence recognized by the mAb2H8F3 was mapped within the gE CT residues 499SDDDGPASN507. A blocking ELISA test was ... More
