  • General notes

    This product was changed from ascites to tissue culture supernatant on 25th October 2016. The following lot(s) is/are from ascites and is still in stock as of 25th October 2016- GR223940,  GR223940. Lot numbers other than GR223940 and GR223940 will be from tissue culture supernatant. Please note that the dilutions may need to be adjusted accordingly.

    In infected cells, ab50549 localizes the immature forms of VSV-G in the rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER) and in the cisternae of Golgi complex, as well as mature VSV-G at the cell surface and in the budding virus. The antibody does not stain the secreted form of VSV-G which lacks the membrane and the cytoplasmic domain.

  • 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.
  • Alternative names
    • Vesicular stomatitis virus glycoprotein tag antibody
    • VSV epitope tag antibody
    • VSV tag antibody
    • VSV-G epitope tag antibody

Thank you for contacting us.

Unfortunately we have not tested this antibody with an N-terminal VSVG tagged protein. The epitope for this clone (P5D4) resides within the C-terminal five amino acids (NRLGK) of the 15-amino acid antigenic ...

Thank you for your enquiry and your interest in our products.

We have a few antibodies which detect VSV-G and are suitable for Western applications. Some of them are unconjugated so it is essential to apply a compatible secondary antibody for...
