|Abstract||A total of 20 hybridoma cell lines secreting monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) against E. coli expressed bovine herpesvirus-1 (BHV-1) gD fusion protein were produced following the fusion of Sp2/0 myeloma cells with splenocytes from BALB/c mice immunized previously with immunoaffinity purified BHV-1 gD fusion protein. An indirect fluorescent antibody test (IFAT) using BHV-1 infected MDBK cells was used for the selection of positive hybridomas secreting specific antibody. The monoclonal antibody isotypes were 11 IgM, six IgG2b, one IgG1 and two IgG3. All MAbs reacted positively with the E. coli expressed BHV-1 gD fusion protein, BHV-1 infected MDBK cell lysates and PCR BHV-1 gD transcription-translation polypeptide antigens by an ELISA.|
