Technical Data
A0880-01E
Adenovirus, Hexon
Description:
Hexon protein is a major coat protein of adenoviruses. Adenoviruses capsids have three principal protein components: the hexon, the penton, and the fiber. Hexon consists of three subunits together forming two major components of different morphological symmetry. A triangular top with three towers of density is superimposed on a more bulky pseudo hexagonal base. The symmetry of the top is in accord with the trimeric nature of hexon, but that of the base derives from the molecular function, which is to provide a densely packed impenetrable protective outer layer for the virion.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, lateral flow and Immunofluorescence. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunofluorescence: Acetone fixed cells. Not recommended with methanol-fixed cells.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Matched Pair:
A0880-01E: Suitable for use as the detection or conjugate (label) antibody.
A0880-01A: Suitable for use as the capture or solid phase antibody.
A0880-18: Suitable for use as the capture or solid phase antibody.
