IgG concentration 1.0mg/ml
This product recognizes the G2 glycoprotein of the Puumala virus, a species of Hantavirus that causes hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) in Russia, Asia and Europe. The Puumala virus causes a mild form of HFRS also called nephropathia epidemica characterised by fever, conjunctival infections, thrombocytopenia and transient renal failure. The virus is carried and transmitted by the bank vole Clethrionomys glareolus in which the virus causes a life-long persistent infection. Puumala is an enveloped virus with a segmented, single-stranded RNA genome and four structural proteins, a RNA polymerase, two envelope glycoproteins (G1 and G2) and a nucleocapsid protein (N).
This product does not cross-react with Dobrava, Hanta and Seoul viruses.
