Synthetic peptides representing 14 regions of the bovine enterovirus structural proteins were used to raise antibodies in mice. The peptides were predicted using amino acid sequence alignments with the position of antigenic sites on other picornaviruses. Five of the anti-peptide antibodies reacted with the virus in an immunoprecipitation test. Furthermore, each of these anti-peptide antibodies neutralized virus infectivity; those directed against peptides of VP2 and VP3 neutralized to a greater extent than those directed against peptides of VP1. The positions of these epitopes in the viral structural proteins are discussed in relation to corresponding positions in other picornaviruses.
