Figure 5. Antibody responses after experimental inoculation of MERS-CoV into llamas and pigs. A) MERS-CoV S1 antibody responses were analyzed in serum from all animals at postinoculation days 0, 14, and 24. An ELISA with recombinant MERS-CoV S1 protein was used, and results are represented individually. B) Individual MERS-CoV neutralization titers from llamas and pigs as determined from serum. Dashed lines depict the detection limit of the assays. MERS-CoV, Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus; OD, optical density; PRNT90, 90% plaque reduction neutralization test.
