Target

  • RelevanceHuman influenza hemagglutinin (HA) is a surface glycoprotein required for the infectivity of the human virus. The HA tag is derived from the HA molecule corresponding to amino acids 98-106 has been extensively used as a general epitope tag in expression vectors. Many recombinant proteins have been engineered to express the HA tag, which does not appear to interfere with the bioactivity or the biodistribution of the recombinant protein. This tag facilitates the detection, isolation, and purification of the proteins.

    • HA1 antibody
    • HA2 antibody
    • hemagglutinin antibody
    • Hemagglutinin HA1 chain antibody

  • ab18181 staining HA tag (green) in HeLa cells by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence.

    Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.5% Triton X-100 and blocked with 3% BSA for 1 hour at 22°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/1000 in diluent) for 1 hour at 22°C. A FITC-conjugated goat anti-mouse polyclonal IgG (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were stained with DAPI (blue).
