Abstract

Allen et al. reveal a molecular basis of antibody-mediated neutralization of Rift Valley fever virus, an important human and animal pathogen. They isolate and demonstrate the protective efficacy of a monoclonal antibody in a murine model of virus infection, providing a blueprint for rational therapeutic and vaccine design.
