Abstract

The fusion motif of tick-borne encephalitis virus E protein has been predicted to be located within its conserved region (98-120). Results are presented to demonstrate that non-neutralizing monoclonal antibody which recognizes a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues 98-113 of the E protein sequence can block the fusion of the virus particles with artificial membranes.
