|Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets||Epstein-Barr Virus, Latent Membrane Protein 1 (EBV-LMP1)|
Monoclonal antibody which can be used to investigate EBV latency and EBV-associated malignant cells.
Background and Research Application
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.
This antibody is specific for latent membrane protein 1 (LMP1) of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). LMP1 is a transforming protein that affects multiple cell signalling pathways and contributes to EBV-associated oncogenesis. This protein 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.
