Abstract

Immunogenicity studies of synthetic peptides from different regions of VP1 protein of foot-and-mouth disease virus strain A22 revealed the following active fragments: 39-61, 50-69, 135-159, 175-189, 170-189 and 197-213. Testing of virus neutralizing antibody production in rabbits primed by peptides and then inoculated by the virus showed that only peptides 135-159 and 170-189 were able to induce the functional T-cell helper activity. Localization of virus-specific T-cell recognition sites in sequences 135-159 and 170-189 was confirmed in in vitro recognition experiments of the virus by peptide activated mice lymphocytes. © 1993.
