Technical Data
Adenovirus, Hexon
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.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Immunodiffusion. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Matched Pair:
A0880-03B: Suitable for use as the detection or conjugate (label) antibody.
A0880-15: Suitable for use as the capture or solid phase antibody.

Source: Ascites

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile 40-50% glycerol, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. 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.
