Technical Data
C9100-21N
Cytomegalovirus Glycoprotein B, Late Neutralizing Antigen (CMV gB, CMV Glycoprotein GP55, HCMV, Human Herpes virus 5, HHV-5, HHV5, UL55)
Description:
Glycoprotein B (gB) is the main antigenic protein within the envelope of HCMV. It is required for CMV mediated membrane fusion along with the gH/gL complex. The unprocessed precursor of HCMV gB is 906aa in length, with a MW of ~100kD.

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

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunofluorescence: Use acetone-fixed CMV infected cells or frozen sections.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
