Papilloma Virus, Human, Type 16 Capsid L1 (hPV, HPV-16, HPV-16 Capsid, HPV16 Capsid Protein, Human Papillomavirus Type 16 L1, HPV16 L1, Human Papillomavirus Type 16 Major Capsid Protein L1, HPV16 Major Capsid Protein L1, Major Capsid Protein, Major Capsid
Description:
L1 is a major capsid protein of type 16 human papilloma virus. Infection with specific types of HPV has been associated with an increased risk of developing cervical neoplasia. HPV types 6 and 11 have been associated with relatively benign diseases such as genital warts but types 16 and 18 are strongly associated with cervical, vaginal, and vulvar malignancies.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
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.
