One of our customers want to buy the antibody of Dengue Virus E glycoprotein. He would like to ask more specifically about the domain group of the antibody #ab41696 and #ab41349. It is because he will choose between these two regarding the domain group. Do you have any information about this?

Thank you for your enquiry. DE1 (ab41349) and DE2 (ab41696) are monoclonal antibodies from two different fusion experiments but the immunizing protocol is the same for both fusions. As mentioned in the datasheets, although they are both dengue group specific, DE1 is the monoclonal that is currently being used in the MAC-ELISA for detection of dengue-specific IgM. We believe that DE2 will function just as well in the MAC-ELISA but extensive comparisons have not been carried out. Additionally, we have tested them on recombinant DIII coated plates and they were not reactive. I hope this information will be useful. If there is anything else that I can help you with, please do not hesitate to contact me.
