SpecificityPurified virions, disrupted. Does not react with T4+ human lymphocytes. Reacts with all the major viral proteins including p17, p24, p53, p64, gp120 and gp160. Will recognize the individual HIV-1 proteins (lysed virus), but it has not been tested against purified intact virions.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at an assay dependent dilution.
RelevanceHIV is a highly variable virus which mutates very readily. This means there are many different strains of HIV, even within the body of a single infected person. The strains of HIV1 can be classified into three groups : the "major" group M, the "outlier" group O and the "new" group N. These three groups may represent three separate introductions of simian immunodeficiency virus into humans. Group O appears to be restricted to West-Central Africa and group N, discovered in 1998 in Cameroon, is extremely rare. More than 90% of HIV1 infections belong to HIV1 group M.
