Rubella, Capsid Protein (German Measles)
Description:
Rubella virus is a human pathogen that causes Rubella (also known as German measles). Rubella is a mild disease characterised by a low-grade fever and possibly a rash. Infection of a woman during the first trimester of pregnancy is far more serious and can lead to a range of birth defects commonly known as congenital rubella syndrome (CRS).

The capsid protein is a non-glycosylated, phosphorylated, disulfide-linked homodimer of 33-38kD. The protein contains clusters of proline and arginine residues, thought to be involved in binding to the viral RNA to form viral nucleocapsids.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA and Immunoblot. 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.
