Identification of antigenic regions of duck hepatitis B virus core protein with antibodies elicited by DNA immunization and chronic infection.
The induction of humoral response in ducks by DNA-based immunization against duck hepatitis B virus (DHBV) core protein (DHBc) was investigated. In addition, the amino acid specificity of the induced response was compared by using peptide scanning to that elicited either by protein immunization or during chronic DHBV infection. Immunization of ducks with a plasmid expressing DHBc protein led to the induction of a long-lasting antibody response able to specifically recognize viral protein in c...Expand abstract
