Question (21004) | Anti-Cryptosporidium parvum antibody (ab20787)

Go to datasheet (ab20787)


Will the antibody detect the organism when able to infect cells (this part of the life cycle).


Thank you for contacting us. I have some further information regarding ab20787 Cryptosporidium parvum antibody. The antibody will detect intact oocysts. We have not tested this antibody against infectious particles/infected cells. The immunogen used to produce this antibody is intact oocysts. Unfortunately we do not have an ICC image available. The antibody crossreacts with a rod-shaped microorganism found in bovine feces. It was thought that this crossreactivity may have been caused by a contaminant organism that co-purified with the immunogen oocysts, but this microorganism has not been identified. This microorganism is not associated with infected cells. I hope this information helps. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have additional questions.
