Abstract

SUMMARY

We have prepared monoclonal antibodies to the capsid protein of feline calicivirus (FCV). These antibodies are directed against two close but distinct epitopes, only one of which is involved in virus neutralization. We have used these antibodies and immune cat serum in immunoprecipitation and Western blotting experiments and have identified novel proteins in FCV-infected cells which we term P78, P41, P35 and P29. The number and sizes of FCV proteins now known resemble those made by other caliciviruses.
