Technical Data
Epstein Barr Virus, Early Antigen, Restricted p17, Bc12 (EA) (EBV)
The Early Restricted protein (EA-Restricted p17) of Epstein-Bar Virus is encoded by the viral BHFR1 gene. EA-Restricted p17 is a 17kD protein (p17) with protein kinase activity. EA-Restricted p17 is a functional homologue of the anti-apoptotic oncoprotein bcl-2, which is expressed during the switch from latency to lytic replication and may be involved in proliferation of EBV infected cells. However, EA-Restricted p17 does not appear to be essential for virus replication or transformation of B cells in vitro.

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

Recommended Dilutions:
