Technical Data
E3440-10G
Epstein Barr Virus, Early Antigen (EBV, Human Herpes virus 4, HHV4)
Description:
EBV early antigen is the first detectable marker of EBV infection in human cells

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

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

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.

Concentration:
~1mg/ml
Immunogen:
Affinity purified early antigen polypeptides precipitated from African Burkitt's Lymphoma.
Purity:
Purified by Protein A affinity chromatography.
Form
Supplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.2, 0.09% sodium azide.
Specificity:
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.
