  • Target

    • Relevance
      Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) glycoprotein B (gB) is an abundant virion envelope protein that has been shown to be essential for the infectivity of HCMV. HCMV gB is also one of the most immunogenic virus-encoded proteins, and a significant fraction of virus neutralizing antibodies are directed at gB.
    • Cellular localization
      Virus envelope.

    This antibody has never been tested against Rhesus CMV and 64% homology does not sound very promising - you would be better off with a polyclonal antibody. We are in the final stages of characterizing a chicken anti-CMV that may be applicable - will...
