Specificity

This product recognizes latent membrane protein 2A (LMP2A) of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). EBV is a human herpesvirus, which is associated with conditions such as Hodgkin❏'s disease and Burkitt❏'s Lymphoma and is the causative agent in mononucleosis in adolescents.

EBV latently infects B lymphocytes. Infected B cells express EBV nuclear antigens and latent proteins LMP1, LMP2A and LMP2B. LMP2A forms aggregates in the plasma membranes of B lymphocytes, where it functions as a negative regulator of the Src and Syk protein tyrosine kinases.

Studies show that LMP2A blocks B-cell receptor (BCR) signal transduction in EBV immortalized B cells in vitro and may play an important role in maintaining a latent EBV infection within the peripheral blood B cells of infected individuals.

This product specifically recognizes LMP2A and does not cross react with LMP2B.
