Analysis of conservation of key antigenic determinants on VP1, VP2 and VP3 of FMDV serotype A.
The full amino acids sequences of VP1, VP2 and VP3 of FMDV serotype A were downloaded from national center for biotechnology information (NCBI) as of June 30, 2023. The key antigenic determinants involved in common residues of A/WH/CHA/09, A/GDMM/CHA/2013 and A/AF72 were framed with rectangles and the conservation of corresponding residue was marked with orange. The key residues 58 (Q) and 147 (G, corresponding to RGD+2 position) on VP1 were determined by bnAbs W151, W153 and W145 (A). The key residues VP2 70 (T), 77 (H), 196 (Q) and VP3 61 (K) were targeted by bnAb W125 (B). The key residues 59 (D), 71 (Q), 76 (K), 84 (K) and 132 (T) on VP3 were targeted by bnAb W2 (C).
