SpecificityPurified matrix protein. Recognizes the matrix protein for any strain of Influenza A. Conservation of the matrix protein sequence between hemagluttinin/Neuraminidase typed strains. Does not react with HEp-2 cells by indirect immunofluorescence. Does not react with Influenza B, Adenovirus, Respiratory syncytial virus and Parainfluenza viruses.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Application notesELISA: Use at an assay dependent dilution for avidin and streptavidin amplification systems.
IF: Use at an assay dependent dilution for avidin and streptavidin amplification systems.
This antibody may be used in place of neat antiserum in almost any appropriate antibody-based technique.
Is unsuitable for IHC.
Not tested in other applications.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
RelevanceInfluenza A and B are the two types of influenza viruses that cause epidemic human disease. Influenza type C infections cause a mild respiratory illness and are not thought to cause epidemics.
Influenza A viruses are further categorized into subtypes on the basis of two surface antigens: hemagglutinin (H) and neuraminidase (N). Strains are also described by geographic origin, strain number and year of isolation.
