Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab41473 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF 1/5 - 1/20.
WB 1/50 - 1/100. Use under non reducing condition. Detects a band of approximately 21 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 21 kDa).
ELISA Use at an assay dependent dilution.


  • Relevance

    There are three structural proteins found in Dengue virus - E glycoprotein, anchored capsid (anC) and pre-membrane (prM). prM cleavage occurs in the final stages of virion maturation. This results in the dissociation of prM-E glycoprotein dimers which allows E glycoprotein to mediate fusion with the host cell membrane.
  • Alternative names

Customer reviews and Q&As

1-3 of 3 Q&A


Q1. What cell type was infected with the virus in order to produce the immunogen?
A1: The mosquito cell line, C6/36, is used for growing virus.

Q2. How was the immunogen purified?
A2: Infected supernatant and lysate were used as immunogen. No purified protein was used.

Q3. Does this antibody bind to the PR peptide or to the mature protein?
A3: Sorry but we do not have any information on the specific epitope recognized by this clone. We do know that it seems the conformational epitope is mostly lost in the western blot which likely explains why DM1 reacts to all 4 dengue serotypes in a sandwich ELISA but only to dengue 2 in the western blot.

J’ai contacté le laboratoire qui m’a envoyé les résultants ELISA, voir pièce jointe.

Pour le western blot, les lysats de cellules C6/36 infectés ont été dilués dans un tampon non réducteur contenant de l’SDS-PAGE. Les échantillons n’ont pas été chauffés afin de minimiser la perte d'épitopes conformationnels.

Nous pensons que la quantité de prM dans la préparation du lysat peut être un problème ici et que la seule façon de confirmer la réactivité contre tous les 4 sérotypes de la dengue serait d'utiliser des protéines recombinantes prM correctement repliées (que nous n'avons pas).

Thank you for your enquiry. This antibody recognizes all 4 serotypes in ELISA, however in Western blot application it detects only Dengue 2. I hope this information will be useful for you.
