Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B IF
The Coronaviridae virus family is characterized by a nucleocapsid that is composed of the genome RNA molecule in combination with the nucleoprotein (N protein) within a virion. The N protein (nucleoprotein) is one of the major structural proteins in a viral particle, playing a critical role in the transcription regulation of the genomic RNA and other viral proteins. It might also be involved in the virulence and virus-specific post-translational modifications. The N protein is composed of 422 amino acids (a.a.) with an estimated molecular weight of 46.03 kD. The most striking physiochemical feature of the N protein of SARS-CoV is that it is a typical basic protein with a high predicted pI and high hydrophilicity, which is consistent with its function of binding to the ribophosphate backbone of the RNA molecule. The N protein contains multiple candidate phosphorylation sites, suggesting that it may be related to important functions, such as
RNA-binding and localization to the nucleolus of host cells. Subsequent study shows that there is an SR-rich region in the N protein and this region might be involved in the protein-protein interaction. The abundant antigenic sites predicted in the N protein, as well as experimental evidence with synthesized polypeptides, indicate that the N protein is one of the major antigens of the SARS-CoV. Compared with other viral structural proteins, the low variation rate of the N protein with regards to its size suggests its importance to the survival of the virus.
Catalog #S0098-19
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Western Blot and ELISA. Other applications have not been tested.
Recommended DilutionImmunofluorescence: 1-5ug/ml
Western Blot: 1-5ug/ml
ELISA: 0.1-2ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
Clone TypeMonoclonal
Clone No6A181
FormSupplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.4, containing 0.1% sodium azide
