Abstract

Summary

Thirty-two hybridoma cell lines producing monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) against the three major structural proteins of transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV) have been isolated. Radioimmunoprecipitation of intracellular viral polypeptides showed that 17 hybridomas recognized both the peplomer protein [E2, 220 × 10 mol. wt. (220K)] and a lower mol. wt. species (E′2, 175K), which was characterized as a precursor of E2. Six MAbs selectively immunoprecipitated the E′2 protein. Four hybridomas were directed against the low mol. wt. envelope protein (E1, 29K), and three against the nucleoprotein (N, 47K). All major neutralization-mediating determinants were found to be carried by the peplomers. Several anti-E2 MAbs displayed an intrinsic neutralizing activity close to that of the most potent anti-TGEV polyclonal reagents tested (including ascitic fluid of feline infectious peritonitis virus-infected cats). None of the anti-E′2 MAbs induced significant neutralization, although this protein might be incorporated to some extent into the virions. Immunofluorescence patterns obtained with MAbs directed against either the envelope glycoproteins or the nucleocapsid revealed distinctly different distributions of these antigens within the cells. Comparison of nine TGEV strains using our panel of MAbs confirmed their close antigenic relationship, but revealed the occurrence of distinct antigenic differences.
