Abstract

The obtainment of monoclonal antibodies for adenovirus species 4(Ad4) is described.The specificities of selected monoclonal antibodies were determined by means of viral neutralization test in cell culture, immunofluorescence and Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA), in the presence of the following species of human adenovirus: 1, 2, 5 (subgenus C), 4 (subgenus E), 7 and 16 (subgenus B) and 9 (subgenus D). Two monoclonal antibodies species specific to adenovirus 4 (1CIII and 3DIII) and one monoclonal antibody that cross reacted with adenovirus species 4 and 7 (2HIII) were obtained.<br>O estudo relata a obtenção de anticorpos monoclonais para o adenovirus tipo (espécie) 4. A especificidade dos anticorpos monoclonais, selecionados nesse experimento, foi determinada testando-os frente às diferentes espécies de adenovírus: 1, 2, 5 (subgênero C), 4 (subgênero E), 7 e 16 (subgênero B) e 9 (subgênero D), pelas técnicas de neutralização em cultura de células, imunofluorescência e ensaio imunoenzimático (ELISA). Os resultados demonstram a obtenção de anticorpos monoclonais que reagiram de maneira específica para o adenovírus 4 (1CIII e 3DIII) e anticorpo monoclonal apresentando reação cruzada com as espécies de adenovírus 4 e 7 (2HIII)
