This product specifically recognizes the repetitive Gly-Ala region of EBV (Epstein-Barr Virus) nuclear antigen 1 (EBNA-1), a viral protein expressed consistently by EBV- associated malignancies.
Epstein-Barr Virus, also known as HHV-4 (Human herpesvirus 4), is a member of the herpesvirus family and one of the most common infectious viruses known, being responsible for a wide range of illnesses from infectious mononucleosis to nasal-pharyngeal cancer. EBNA-1 is the only viral protein expressed during group 1 latency and mediates the replication and partitioning of the episome during host cell division, binding to a replication origin (oriP) within the viral genome. The Gly-Ala repeat recognized by This product, inhibits the host❏'s CD8-restricted cytotoxic T-cell response to infected cells, by impairing antigen processing and MHC class I-restricted antigen presentation.
This product is reported as being suitable for use in immunocytochemistry.
