Soybean dwarf virus (SbDV) cell infection produces structural and nonstructural proteins in plants. A coat protein is the major protein of the virion involved in viral attachment, membrane fusion and host entry. Antigenic epitopes on this protein protect against virus infection and virus-neutralizing antibodies may be sufficient to impart immunity. The findings of this report suggest that epitopes RAPRVQLMAVPTVTS; SDGILKAYHEYKITSILLQFIT, 20-34; 93-114 of coat protein could be sufficient to induce an immune response. Peptides from sbDV protein that produce virus-neutralizing epitope(s) may therefore induce sbDV neutralizing antibodies.


KEY-WORDS- Soybean dwarf virus, coat Protein, antigenic epitope, immune response.
