Abstract

A variant of the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) technique involving the use of a specially selected monoclonal antibody against the BLV envelope glycoprotein gp51 yields a highly sensitive, practical and cheap method for the detection of Bovine Leukemia virus (BLV) antibodies, gp51 antigen and for the measurement of antigenic variations in the gp51 molecule.
