Protein Name & Synonyms:
RSV Fusion Protein
ELISA (dilution: 1/10, 1/50), Immunofluorescence
IgG concentration 0.1mg/ml
This product detects the fusion protein of human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), groups A and B. RSV is a negative-sense, single-stranded RNA virus and is a 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.
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.
