PDCoV ELISA development

Porcine deltacoronavirus (PDCoV) was first identified in the United States in February 2014 in pigs with unexplained diarrheal disease in which PDCoV was later observed to be present. Diagnosis of PDCoV is performed using a real-time PCR assay to detect…

PRRSV Modulation of the Porcine Antibody Repertoire

Antibody responses play a crucial role in defense against many viral diseases, and knowledge of critical functions can be used to monitor and predict vaccine efficacy. We have identified the features of key antibodies produced in response to PRRSV, and…

Structural characterization of the PRRSv glycan shield

Knowing the composition and structure of PRRSV is an important prerequisite for development of immunological prevention and control strategies, just as knowing what a spark plug looks like is important when you need to replace it. The surface of a…
