Characterisation of monoclonal antibodies specific for hamster leukocyte differentiation molecules (2016)
Journal Article
Rees, J., Haig, D., Mack, V., & Davis, W. C. (in press). Characterisation of monoclonal antibodies specific for hamster leukocyte differentiation molecules. Veterinary Immunology and Immunopathology, 183, doi:10.1016/j.vetimm.2016.12.003. ISSN 0165-2427

Flow cytometry was used to identify mAbs that recognize conserved epitopes on hamster leukocyte differentiation molecules (hLDM) and also to characterize mAbs developed against hLDM. Initial screening of mAbs developed against LDMs in other species y... Read More

Alcelaphine herpesvirus 1 glycoprotein B: recombinant expression and antibody recognition (2015)
Journal Article
Dry, I., Todd, H., Deane, D., Percival, A., Mclean, K., Inglis, N. F., …Russell, G. C. (2016). Alcelaphine herpesvirus 1 glycoprotein B: recombinant expression and antibody recognition. Archives of Virology, 161(3), 613-619. doi:10.1007/s00705-015-2701-y

The gammaherpesvirus alcelaphine herpesvirus 1 (AlHV-1) causes fatal malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) in susceptible species including cattle, but infects its reservoir host, wildebeest, without causing disease. Pathology in cattle may be influenced b... Read More

Identification of immuno-reactive capsid proteins of malignant catarrhal fever viruses (2014)
Journal Article
Bartley, K., Deane, D., Percival, A., Dry, I. R., Grant, D. M., Inglis, N. F., …Russell, G. C. (2014). Identification of immuno-reactive capsid proteins of malignant catarrhal fever viruses. Veterinary Microbiology, 173(1-2), 17-26. doi:10.1016/j.vetmic.2014.07.004

Malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) is a fatal disease of cattle and other ungulates caused by certain gamma-herpesviruses including alcelaphine herpesvirus-1 (AlHV-1) and ovine herpesvirus-2 (OvHV-2). An attenuated virus vaccine based on AlHV-1 has been... Read More
