Technical Data
Cytomegalovirus Glycoprotein B, Late Cytoplasmic Antigen (CMV gB, CMV Glycoprotein GP55, HCMV, Human Herpes virus 5, HHV-5, HHV5, UL55)
Cytomegalovirus is an enveloped double stranded DNA virus which in humans (HCMV) is commonly known as human Herpes virus 5 (HHV-5). Glycoprotein B (gB) is the main antigenic protein within the envelope of HCMV. It is required for HCMV mediated membrane fusion along with the gH / gL complex. The unprocessed precursor of HCMV gB is 906 amino acids in length, with a MW of ~100kD.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunofluorescence and Immunohistochemistry (frozen sections). Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunofluorescence: 0.02-1ug/slide; Reactive only in acetone fixed CMV infected cells or frozen sections.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Recommended Secondary Antibodies:
I1904-06C: IgG, H&L (HRP) (X-Adsorbed) Pab Gt x Mo
I1904-06H: IgG, H&L (HRP) (X-Adsorbed) Pab Gt x Mo
I1904-14C: IgG, Fc (HRP) Pab Gt x Mo
I1904-19C: IgG, F(ab)2 (HRP) Pab Gt x Mo
