Human Rhinovirus Monoclonal Antibody
Catalog No.: 18758
Format: 100ug Protein G-purified antibody in PBS, pH 7.4.
Picornaviruses are small, non-enveloped RNA viruses with an icosahedral capsid and a single strand, plus-sense RNA genome. The genome encodes a single polyprotein that is proteolytically processed by viral proteases into structural and non-structural proteins. The family of picornaviruses includes numerous human and animal viruses including more than 100 serotypes of human rhinoviruses (HRV). HRV infections are characteristic upper airway infections (the main cause of the common cold), and they provoke significant lower airway symptoms for patients with asthma, cystic fibrosis, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Antigen: Purified HRV16.
Clone no.: R16-7
Host Species: Mouse
Antibody Subtype: IgG2b
This non-neutralizing antibody recognizes capsid protein VP2 (mw ~30kDa) of HRV16, HRV1A, and HRV39 and VP2 precursors VP0 (mw ~37kDa) and P1 (mw ~90kDa).
Immunoblotting: use at 2-5ug/ml.
Immunohistochemistry: use at 1-10ug/ml.
These are recommended concentrations; endusers should determine optimal concentrations for their applications.
Dilute in PBS or medium which is identical to that used in the assay system.
STORAGE AND STABILITY
This antibody is stable for at least one (1) year at -20°C. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
