Measurements of humoral immune responses to West Nile virus (WNV) infection in mouse or other animal models are valuable components of basic laboratory investigations to assess immunogenicity of candidate vaccines or to evaluate seroconversion following challenge with WNV. Here, we outline the steps for screening or titrating of total antibodies by indirect enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) as well as assessment of neutralizing antibody titers by immunofocus detection.
