Summary of "Identification of a novel linear B-cell epitope within the collagenase equivalent domain of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus spike glycoprotein."

The porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) collagenase equivalent domain (COE, residues 499-638), a crucial antigenic region within the viral spike (S) glycoprotein, has been widely utilized for the development of subunit vaccines to prevent viral infection. In the current study, we immunized BALB/c mice with recombinant truncated PEDV COE protein and obtained 14 COE-specific monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). Based on the reactivity analysis of the mAbs with two prevalent PEDV strains in G2 type and the attenuated CV777 strain in G1 type, 6 mAbs were selected for subsequent identification of COE mAb-binding epitopes. Dot-blot hybridization and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) identified the peptide TSLLASACTIDLFGYP as a novel linear B-cell epitope involved in binding of mAbs 4D8F10 and 6F3E3. Subsequently, alanine (A)-scanning mutagenesis demonstrated that residues 606Y, 605 G and 604 F were core residues involved in recognition. Importantly, this novel COE epitope, including core residues, is conserved among G1 and G2 type PEDV strains. Further experiment indicates that the mAbs 4D8F10 and 6F3E3 were suitable for PEDV detection via mAb binding to the conserved epitope. The current work actually provides potential uses for the development of diagnostic methods to detect PEDV.

A technique of operations research for solving certain kinds of problems involving many variables where a best value or set of best values is to be found. It is most likely to be feasible when the quantity to be optimized, sometimes called the objective function, can be stated as a mathematical expression in terms of the various activities within the system, and when this expression is simply proportional to the measure of the activities, i.e., is linear, and when all the restrictions are also linear. It is different from computer programming, although problems using linear programming techniques may be programmed on a computer.

A vinyl polymer made from ethylene. It can be branched or linear. Branched or low-density polyethylene is tough and pliable but not to the same degree as linear polyethylene. Linear or high-density polyethylene has a greater hardness and tensile strength. Polyethylene is used in a variety of products, including implants and prostheses.

The amount of radiation energy that is deposited in a unit mass of material, such as tissues of plants or animal. In RADIOTHERAPY, radiation dosage is expressed in gray units (Gy). In RADIOLOGIC HEALTH, the dosage is expressed by the product of absorbed dose (Gy) and quality factor (a function of linear energy transfer), and is called radiation dose equivalent in sievert units (Sv).
