Abstract

The location of five SDS-stable epitopes on the coat protein (CP) of beet necrotic yellow vein virus was determined by reacting -expressed free CP, as well as fusion proteins (FP) containing fragments of the CP, with polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies on Western blots. Epitope 1, which has previously been found to be exposed on only one extremity of the virus particle, was located in the region between amino acids (aa) 1 and 7, i.e. on the N terminus of the CP. It was blocked when the N terminus of the CP was linked to a portion of the -galactosidase sequence in an FP. Epitope 3, which has previously been found to be exposed on the opposite extremity of the particle, was located in the region between aa 37 and 59. Epitope 4, which is exposed along the entire length of the particle, occurs on the C terminus of CP (aa 183 to 188). Two previously unknown epitopes were identified in the regions between aa 115 and 125 and 125 and 140, respectively. The former was located on the same extremity of the particle as epitope 3, the latter became accessible only after denaturation of the particle. Nothing is known about the probably non-adjacent aa sequences that participate in the formation of the two SDS-labile epitopes (epitopes 2 and 5) which are found on one extremity and along the entire length of the particle, respectively.
