Abstract

We used a deer mouse () infection model to test the protective efficacy of genetic vaccine candidates for Sin Nombre (SN) virus that were known to provoke immunological responses in BALB/c mice (Bharadwaj ., 17, 2836–2843, 1999 ). Protective epitopes were localized in each of four overlapping cDNA fragments that encoded portions of the SN virus G1 glycoprotein antigen; the nucleocapsid gene also was protective. The protective efficacy of glycoprotein gene fragments correlated with splenocyte proliferation in the presence of cognate antigen, but none induced neutralizing antibodies. Genetic vaccines against SN virus can protect outbred deer mice from infection even in the absence of a neutralizing antibody response.
