An indirect solid phase radioimmunoassay using rabbit antibodies to the synthetic double-stranded RNA poly rIrC and 125I-labelled sheep anti-rabbit IgG could detect 1 ng of poly rIrC. This assay could also detect the presence of double-stranded RNA in Semliki Forest virus-infected chick fibroblasts and can be used as an assay for interferon activity.
