  • Relevance

    Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) glycoprotein B (gB) is an abundant virion envelope protein that has been shown to be essential for the infectivity of HCMV. HCMV gB is also one of the most immunogenic virus-encoded proteins, and a significant fraction of virus neutralizing antibodies are directed at gB.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for contacting us.

Because we carry over 90,000 products, it isn't feasible for us to keep small sample sizes of our products, and therefore I am not able to offer a test sample of ab74085.
