Technical Data
Cytomegalovirus, 65kD Late Major (CMV pp65, 65kD Matrix Phosphoprotein, 65kD Phosphoprotein, HCMV, Human Herpes virus 5, HHV-5, HHV5, HHV5wtgp077, PP65, Tegument Protein pp65, Tegument Protein UL83, UL83)
The 65kD late major matrix protein of the cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a member of the Herpes virus family. CMV is a DNA virus that is widespread in the general population and characterized by its ability to give rise to persistent latent infections. The virus is the largest of the Herpes viruses and has the largest genome of any known virus. CMV is transmitted by the parenteral route and persists latently in circulating leukocytes and endothelial cells lining the walls of blood vessels. CMV lyses cells by disrupting the cytoskeleton and causing massive cell enlargement.

Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
