A panel of human mAbs were sequenced, including RRV-19, was generated from the peripheral blood mononuclear cells of two donors who were naturally infected with RRV1.

Other Applications Reported In Literature ?
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
RRV-19 activity is directed against the B domain of the E2 protein and was determined by alanine scanning mutagenesis using cell-surface expression of RRV proteins and flow cytometric screening were used to identify critical binding residues in the E2 glycoprotein. Loss of binding occurs when residue 221 on the B domain of the E2 protein is mutated. Furthermore, clone RRV-19 is capable of neutralizing virus in both pre- and post-attachment neutralization assays.
Ross River Virus E2 is expressed on the surface of RRV.
Ross River Virus (RRV) is a mosquito-borne, positive sense, single-stranded virus endemic to Australia and Papua New Guinea that belongs to the arthritogenic group of alphaviruses1. The mature glycoprotein is composed of E1 and E2 envelope proteins in a heterodimer, expressed as a trimeric spike on the virus surface 2.
RRV-19 is of the IgG1 isotype and is capable of binding and neutralizing prototype strain RRV T48 as well as clinical isolate strains PW7, SN11, PW14, 2897601, and O’Regan in focus reduction neutralization tests1.
