Identification of novel B-cell epitope in gp85 of subgroup J avian leukosis virus and its application in diagnosis of disease

The gp85 is the main envelope protein of avian leukosis subgroup J (ALV-J) involved in virus neutralization. Here, we mapped the epitope in ALV-J gp85 by ELISA using synthetic peptides and developed epitope based diagnostic methods for ALV-J infection.
