EBV early antigen is the first detectable marker of EBV infection in human cells
Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Immunohistochemistry: paraffin sections
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
|Affinity purified early antigen polypeptides precipitated from African Burkitt's Lymphoma.|
|Purified by Protein A affinity chromatography.|
|Supplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.2, 0.09% sodium azide.|
|Recognizes the the p50:p55 polypeptide complex associated with the early antigen of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Produces an intense diffuse and speckled staining pattern detectable in the nucleus of paraformaldehyde/acetone fixed cells expressing the EBV early nuclear antigen. Acetone and methanol fixation can be used, but the results are a less bright, coarsely granular nuclear staining pattern.|
|Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.|
