Thirty-three pestivirus strains were grown in cell culture and characterized by immunostaining with 19 monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) raised against hog cholera virus (HCV), with 42 MAbs against bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV) and with 13 MAbs against border disease virus (BDV). Seven MAbs reacted with all pestivirus strains tested, eight MAbs detected only the seven HCV strains, three detected only the 16 BVDV strains. No MAb was found that was specific for BDV. BVDV and BDV strains were broadly cross-reactive with the MAbs, indicating a close relationship between these two species, wher…
