Protein Name & Synonyms:
This product reacts with rotavirus and is specific for ICPs and late structural (virion) antigens. It has been reported to exhibit 90% cross reactivity with human rotavirus and does not react with HEp-2 cells or WI-38 cells in immunofluorescence. Rotavirus is a virus that infects the bowels and is the most common cause of gastroenteritis in infants. 7 major groups have currently been identified, 3 of which infect humans (groups A, B and C). Its genome consists of 11 segments of double stranded RNA held in the inner core of the three layered, icosahedral virion particle. The genome codes for 6 virus proteins (VP1,2,3,4,6,7) and 6 non-structural proteins (NSP1-6). Outer capsid proteins are VP4 and VP7, inner capsid -VP6 and core -VP2. The immunity acquired from exposure to rotavirus appears to be type specific following initial infection; therefore, multiple serotypes of rotavirus mean multiple opportunities for infection.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 18 months after receipt.
