Figure 2

Titration of polyclonal XMRV rabbit and monoclonal spleen focus forming virus (SFFV) envelope rat antisera in Western blot (WB) assay. Antibody titers of positive control anti-sera and reactivity of pre-immune sera to polytropic MuLV-infected (upper panel) and uninfected (lower panel) HeLa cell crude cell lysates in WB testing. Specific antisera tested are located at the bottom of each WB. Arrows indicate observed titers for each antiserum. Fr, Friend; Ra, Rauscher. Locations of reactivity to specific viral proteins are indicated. Env (gp69/71), envelope; TM (p15E), transmembrane; MA (p15), matrix; Gag (pr68/80); CA (p30), capsid. Molecular weight markers (kD) are provided on the left of the WBs in the upper panels. Sizes of expected viral proteins are provided in each WB in the upper panels.
