    Unsuitable for: IHC
  • Species reactivity
    Does not react with Influenza B, Adenovirus, Respiratory syncytial virus and Parainfluenza viruses (1-3). Not yet tested in other species.
  • Immunogen

    corresponding to Matrix protein 1. Purified M1 protein, Influenza A-Phillipines (H3N2).

  • General notes

    Use of sodium azide as a preservative will substantially inhibit the enzyme activity of horseradish peroxidase.

    The antibody is covalently coupled to a highly purified preparation of horseradish peroxidase (RZ>3). Care is taken to ensure adequate conjugation while preserving maximum enzyme activity. Free enzyme is removed.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab21008 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Application notesIs unsuitable for IHC.
  • Target

    • RelevanceInfluenza virus type A matrix protein, also known as M1, is composed of a 252 amino acid sequence and is type-specific in influenza viruses. It is located inside the viral lipid envelope and plays a key role in virus assembly and replication. M1 can be isolated from particles by removing the envelope with detergents and reducing the pH to 4.0. Influenza viruses are a common and widely spread infectious agent. Like many other viruses, influenza virus are constantly undergoing mutations and thereby avoiding the immune system. The Influenza A Virus M proteins form a continuous shell on the inner side of the lipid bilayer, maintaining the structural integrity of the virus particle through hydrophobic interactions.
