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

Invented by Prof Martin Rowe at University Of Birmingham

Info

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 Anti-EBV (CS1) is a latent membrane protein 1 antibody, which detects a specific epitope upon LMP fusion protein in B-cell transformations, following EBV infection.

Background and Research Application
A combination of four pooled antibodies which collectively detect the latent membrane protein (LMP) of EBV, an important effector protein in B-cell transformation under EBV infection, across 20 geographically distinct EBV isolates.
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. These include 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.
These antibodies were created to examine various aspects of LMP expression in B-cell lines transformed in vitro, detecting LMPs from 20 geographically varied EBV isolates.
Host Mouse
Immunogen UniProt ID P03230
Positive Control EBV transformed lymphoblastoid cell lines
Subclass IgG1 kappa
Molecular Weight (kDa) 57-66
Myeloma Used P3X63Ag8.653
Notes Production Details
Purified using multi-step affinity chromatography with protein A.

Storage Conditions
Store at -20 degrees frozen. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

Points of Interest
Anti-EBV LMP 1, along with 2-4, showed the expression of full length LMP was strongly inducible by phorbol ester and/or sodium butyrate not just in cells entering a lytic cycle. This indicates expression of LMP in EBV transformed B-cells is under specific regulations.

Concentration
1mg/ml as standard

Difference Between Clones
4 antibodies directed against EBV LMP1 were produced in the original experiment, CS1-4. Anti-EBV (CS1) reacted strongly with both of the major pKH548 bands, whilst CS2-4 only reacted with the higher 150kDa band. This suggests CS1 recognises an epitope within the LMP fusion protein distinct to the other three anti-LMP antibodies. All antibodies are specific for the carboxy terminus of LMP 1 aa 186–386
