Monoclonal antibodies have been used as probes to study the architecture of several plant viruses over the past decade. These studies complement the information obtained through X-ray crystallography and help in delineating epitopes on the surface of the virus. The monoclonal antibodies that recognize distinct epitopes also aid in unravelling the mechanisms of assembly/disassembly of virus particles. Group-specific and strain-specific monoclonal antibodies are widely used in the classification of viruses. The significant developments made in this emerging area are reviewed here with specific examples.
