Good day I am a postdoctoral scientist at the NIH and I am interested in purchasing one of your CCR5 peptides. However I am not sure which of the peptide products (ab92719, ab95861 or ab7876) might be more suited to my experiment. I am working on anti-HIV targets and I want to test (via ELISAs) if my target inhibits the gp120-CCR5 binding. Could you recommend one of your CCR5 peptides (and corresponding anti-CCR5 antibody) that might be most suited for my application? Thanks and regards

Thank you for contacting Abcam.
These peptides are very short fragments of the CCR5 protein and as such may not contain the gp120 binding site. You may wish to use the whole protein. While this is not currently available at Abcam, you may find this by searching biocompare.com These peptides (ab7876ab92719 and ab95861) are the immunizing antigens for antibodies ab7346, ab64620 and ab85837 respectively.
None of the antibodies has yet been tested in ELISA. For UNTESTED species and/or applications, we have established a testing discount program. Here is a brief description of how it works:
The testing discount program is for customers who like to use an antibody/protein on an untested species/application. You would purchase the antibody at full price, test it and submit an Abreview with your data (positive or negative). On your next order you will receive a discount for ONE antibody at the full price (100%) of the antibody you have tested. The terms and conditions applicable to this offer can be found here: https://www.abcam.com/collaborationdiscount.
If you would be interested in this offer please let me know.
The product pages for these antibodies are at:
I hope that this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions or there are other ways that Abcam may help you meet your research goals.
