  • RelevanceVesicular stomatitis virus (VSV), an enveloped RNA virus from the Rhabdoviridae family, is released from the plasma membrane of host cells by a process called budding. The glycoprotein (VSV-g) contains a domain in its extracellular membrane proximal stem that appears to be needed for efficient VSV budding.

  • ab27026 staining VSV-G tag in VSV-G-GFP overexpressing Hela cells by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence. The cells were fixed in formaldehyde, permeabilized in 0.1% saponin and blocked in 20mM glycine in PBS for 20 minutes at 23°C. A Alexa Fluor® 568 conjugated goat polyclonal to chicken was used, undiluted as secondary. Red color repersents staining with ab27026.
