Anti-RSV Nucleoprotein VP41 [4-18]

Invented by Ayham Alnabulsi at Vertebrate Antibodies Limited

Info

Catalogue Number 151852
Applications ELISA IF WB
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets Human Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) nucleoprotein VPN41
Reactivity Virus
Relevance Human Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a major cause of lower respiratory tract illness and is the chief cause of hospitalization for respiratory tract illness in young children.

There are two RS virus subgroups, A and B. The A and B subgroups circulate concurrently with subgroup A usually dominating. This antibody is useful for the diagnosis of RS virus subgroup A and B infections, since the nucleoprotein is very abundant within infected cells, which makes virus detection assays highly sensitive.The nucleoprotein is located in the nucleocapsid of the virion; it is abundant and forms a tight complex with virus genomic RNA.

Anti-Nucleoprotein VP41 [RSV 4-18] reacts with both human RS virus Subgroups A and B.
