Respiratory Syncytial Virus (Biotin)
Description:
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a negative-sense, single-stranded RNA virus and member of the Paramyxoviridae family. RSV causes respiratory tract infections in patients of all ages, but particularly affects infants and the immunosuppressed. RSV encodes three envelope glycoproteins, a small hydrophobic (SH) protein of unknown function, a glycoprotein (G) known as the attachment protein, and a fusion (F) protein. The F protein directs fusion of viral and cellular membranes, resulting in viral penetration, and can lead to the formation of syncytia. The F protein is thought to be the principal antigen responsible for inducing an immune response.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Functional Assays, and Immunohistochemistry (frozen). Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
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 at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
