KOI HERPES VIRUS-SPECIFIC ANTIBODY AND ANTIGEN THEREOF
Provided is a koi herpes virus-specific antigen peptide that will react with an anti-koi herpes virus antibody but will not react with anti-cyprinid herpesvirus
an anti-koi herpes virus-specific antibody that is koi herpes virus-specific but does not show crossability with cyprinid herpesvirus, and a test kit and detection kit that use this koi herpes virus-specific antigen or anti-koi herpes virus-specific antibody. A region useful as the primary antigen of koi herpes virus (KHV) was discovered from the koi herpes virus genome DNA. It was confirmed that an antibody wherein the antigen is this region does not display crossability with cyprinid herpesvirus (CHV), but has high koi herpes virus (KHV) detection sensitivity.
