Antigenic profile of feline parvoviruses, including Canine parvovirus 2c (CPV-2c) types. Subtype-specific monoclonal antibodies are used to type the viruses in a hemagglutinin-inhibition test (HI). Mink enteritis virus (MEV-3) shows similar patterns to MEV-2  (2). FPLV = Feline panleukopenia virus; BFPV = blue fox parvovirus.
