Technical Data
R3004-06A
Rotavirus Group A Specific Antigen, VP6
Description:
Rotavrus A is the most common causative viral agent of severe gastroenteritis among the young worldwide, resulting from the production of a powerful diarrhoea-inducing enterotoxin, within the small intestine.The serotypes of rotavirus A are determined by two gene products: protease-sensitive protein VP4 and glycoprotein VP7, which act as antigens on the surface of the virus, and are used to classify group A rotavirus as either P type or G type, respectively.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: Can be used as both a capture and conjugated detection antibody in direct sandwich ELISA.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
