Will a Windows antivirus detect Mac Viruses?

I’m letting Mac and Windows users upload files to a file repository and need to scan them for Mac-targeting and Windows-targeting viruses. Should I expect that a Windows AV will detect most Mac viruses, or should I go the route of scanning all files with two programs, using a Mac-specific antivirus on a mac, in addition to a Windows-specific antivirus on a windows machine?
