Research—Monoclonal Antibody Test for Whitespot


In this study, three groups of monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) specific to different epitopes on the VP26 gene were selected to detect natural WSSV infection in Penaeus vannamei using dot blotting, Western blotting or immunohistochemistry without cross-reaction with other shrimp tissues or other common shrimp viruses.   These VP26-specific MAbs could be used to confirm and to enhance the detection sensitivity for WSSV infection in shrimp with various types of antibody-based assays.
