Antibodies against Lagos Bat Virus in Megachiroptera from West Africa
Figure 1. Antibody titers to Lagos bat virus (LBV) in 6 species of fruit bat in Ghana. An LBV-specific modified fluorescent antibody neutralization test was used to determine the level of antibody in bats; it used two 3-fold serial dilutions and derived a mean dilution at which the bats neutralized LBV. Bats with mean titers >9 were considered positive. The circle size represents the number of bats tested. 1, Epomops franqueti; 2, Epomophorus gambianus; 3, Epomops buettikoferi; 4, Eidolon helvum; 5, Hypsignathus monstrosus; 6, Nanonycteris veldkampii.
