Neutralization assay with LLcMk2 cells*

Virus Antiserum Viral controls
a-HPeV1 (Harris) a-HPeV2 (Williamson) a-HPeV3 (A308-99)
HPeV1 Harris ++++ ++++ ++++
HPeV2 Williamson ++++ ++++ ++++
K251181-02 (HPeV3) ++++ ++++ ++++
K251176-02 ++++ ++++ ++++ ++++

*Culture isolates of K251176-02, human parechovirus 1 (HPeV1, echovirus 22) and HPeV2 (echovirus 23) from a reference panel (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment, Bilthoven, the Netherlands) and K251181-02 that was previously genotyped as HPeV3 (12) were incubated with antisera (20 U/mL in Eagle minimal essential medium) directed against HPeV1 Harris, HPeV2 Williamson, and HPeV3 A308-99. The antisera to HPeV1 and HPeV2 were raised in horses. The antiserum to HPeV3 was raised in guinea pigs. Neutralization is done on a 96-microtiter plate containing a monolayer of LLcMk2 cells that have been incubated for 3 days. The assay was determined after viral controls (no antisera used) of the 4 culture isolates showed cytopathic effects >50% (++++).
