Washington: By screening a library of billion llama antibodies on live Ebola viruses in the Texas Biomedical Research Institute`s highest biocontainment laboratory, scientists in San Antonio have identified a potential weakness in the make-up of these deadly agents that can immediately yield a sensitive test."Detecting single viral protein components can be challenging, especially at very low levels. However, most viruses are repetitive assemblies of a few components, called antigens, with some existing as polymers which present highly `avid` targets for antibodies," Texas Biomed virologist Andrew Hayhurst, Ph.D said.
