West Nile specific antibodies

West Nile virus (WNV) is an enveloped, single-stranded RNA virus that belongs to the genus Flavivirus. It is a member of the Japanese encephalitis sero-complex of the family Flaviviridae, which also includes Japanese encephalitis virus, St. Louis encephalitis and Murray Valley encephalitis virus. In nature, West Nile virus is maintained in a cycle between birds and mosquitoes. However, WNV can also be transmitted to incidental hosts such as humans, horses and other mammals by mosquito vectors. Since the first human WNV infection was identified in 1937 the virus has continued to spread. West Nile virus is now found in many regions of the world including Africa, Europe, West Asia, North and South America (Chancey, C).

The Native Antigen Company also specialises in development and manufacture of native and recombinant viral antigens to support researchers working with WNV .
