Solid-Phase Radioimmunoassay for Detecting Bovine (Neonatal Calf Diarrhea) Rotavirus Antibody

By Lorne A. Babiuk, Stephen D. Acres and Barry T. Rouse

Abstract

An indirect solid-phase microradioimmunoassay is described for detecting antibodies against rotaviruses. The test involved ethanol fixation of microcultures of bovine rotavirus-infected BSC-1 cells and reaction with bovine antirotavirus serum, followed by 125I-labeled rabbit anti-bovine immunoglobulin G. The technique was shown to be virus specific and highly sensitive. The fixed microcultures could be stored at 4°C for at least 2 months without affecting the sensitivity of the test. The application of this system for the detection of rotavirus antibodies in humans is briefly discussed
