Isolated poliovirus capsid protein VP1 induces a neutralizing response in rats

Chow, Marie and Baltimore, David (1982) Isolated poliovirus capsid protein VP1 induces a neutralizing response in rats. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 79 (23). pp. 7518-7521. ISSN 0027-8424. doi:10.1073/pnas.79.23.7518.

Antibodies were raised in rats against the poliovirus type 1 capsid proteins, VP1, VP2, and VP3. Antibodies directed against VP1 from type 1 poliovirus (Mahoney) neutralized type 1 but not type 2 poliovirus. Antibodies raised against VP2 and VP3 failed to neutralize type 1 virus. Thus, VP1 appears to be a neutralizing antigen for poliovirus and in its denatured form presents to the immune system its neutralizing determinants.
