This product is specific for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) a negative-sense, single-stranded RNA virus and member of the Paramyxoviridae family. RSV causes respiratory tract infections in patients of all ages, but particularly affects infants and the immunosuppressed. RSV encodes three envelope glycoproteins, a small hydrophobic (SH) protein of unknown function, a glycoprotein (G) known as the attachment protein, and a fusion (F) protein. The F protein directs fusion of viral and cellular membranes, resulting in viral penetration, and can lead to the formation of syncytia.
The F protein is thought to be the principal antigen responsible for inducing an immune response.
This product reacts with the human RSV isolate (all viral antigens) and with bovine isolates.
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.
