Anti-EBV Latent Membrane Protein 1 [CS 1-4]


Catalogue Number 151471
Applications IHC IF IP WB
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets Epstein-Barr Virus, Latent Membrane Protein 1 (EBV-LMP1)
Reactivity Virus
Relevance EBV is a human herpesvirus that establishes a life-long persistence in the host. The virus infects the vast majority of the world's adult population and is well known for its association with a broad spectrum of benign and malignant diseases, including infectious mononucleosis, Burkitt's lymphoma, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, and is causally associated with lymphoid and epithelial malignancies, including post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders, Hodgkin's disease, anaplastic nasopharyngeal carcinoma and gastric carcinomas. Latent membrane protein 1 (LMP1) of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a transforming protein that affects multiple cell signalling pathways and contributes to EBV-associated oncogenesis. LMP1 can be expressed in some states of EBV latency, and significant induction of full-length LMP1 is also observed frequently during virus reactivation into the lytic cycle. LMP1 is critical for EBV-infected cell activation, adhesion and survival, and is usually expressed in the malignant cells.

CS 1-4 is specific for Epstein-Barr virus infected cells expressing the latent membrane protein (LMP). This antibody is four pooled monoclonal antibodies that collectively detect LMP's encoded by each of 20 geographically distinct EBV isolates.
