Five monoclonal antibodies (MoAb) were produced to the envelope (E) protein of Kunjin (KUN) virus. Three of these were specific for the KUN/West Nile complex, and two reacted with epitopes that were common to the flavivirus family. These MoAb defined at least four distinct epitopes on the E protein of KUN virus. Eight MoAb were also produced to unidentified proteins of Kokobera (KOK) virus. Seven were specific for KOK, while the remaining antibody cross-reacted with Stratford virus and an unregistered flavivirus CS946. The application of these MoAb to arboviral surveillance is discussed.
