In this study, an antigen-capturing enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (AC-ELISA) was established for the detection of avian reticuloendotheliosis virus (REV) using monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies against gp90. New Zealand white rabbits were immunized with recombinant REV-gp90 protein, and polyclonal antibodies were obtained after purification and used as the capture antibody. Mice monoclonal antibody 1A12D against REV-gp90 protein previously prepared in our laboratory was used as the detection antibody. The specificity of the AC-ELISA was confirmed with REV, avian leukosis virus subgroup J, Marek's disease virus serotype Ⅰ, avian hepatitis E virus and Fowl adenovirus serotype 4. The results showed that the AC-ELISA had specific binding reaction with REV, and did not react with other viruses. The detection limit of this assay was 195 TCID50 units of REV. Furthermore, commercial vaccine artificially contaminated with REV was detected by three methods: AC-ELISA, the TaqMan probe fluorescence real-time quantitative RT-PCR (RT-qPCR) and indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA). The results showed that the positive coincidence rate of RT-qPCR and AC-ELISA was 90.63 %, and the positive coincidence rate of RT-qPCR and IFA was 96.88%, indicating that the AC-ELISA established in this study was effective and feasible. This method simplified the detection process for REV contamination in poultry attenuated vaccines, and provide necessary technical tools for high-throughput detection of REV.
