  • Description

    Mouse monoclonal [HB5] to Hepatitis B Virus Surface Antigen
  • Host species

  • Specificity

    Recognizes following Hepatitis B virus subtypes:ayw2, ayw3, ayw4, ayr, adw2, adw4, adrq+, adrq- Specificity of MAb HB5 was verified by ELISA on panel of International Workshop on HBsAg Subtypes (Paris, April 1975). This antibody does not cross-block with ab8256 and is therefore suitable for use with ab8256 as a matched pair.

  • Relevance

    Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infection induces a disease state which manifests itself in a variety of ways, characterized by the extent of liver damage, inflammation and viral persistence. HBV infection is also associated with a 100 fold increased risk of hepatocellular carcinoma and currently infects over 250 million people worldwide. HBV has a partially double stranded 3.2 kilobase DNA genome which contains four open reading frames. One of these encodes a 154 amino acid protein called the HBx protein. HBx has been shown to be a transcriptional transactivator of both viral and cellular promoters. Lacking a DNA binding domain and nuclear localization signal, HBx is believed to exert transcriptional activity through protein protein interaction.

    Thank you for your email.
    We do offer a variety of antibodies that will recognize the four major serotypes: adr, adw, ayr, ayw.
    If it has been tested which serotype is recognizwed by an antibody this information can be found on the datasheet in the "specificity" section.
    Here is a non- exhaustive list of antibodies that bind all four major serotypes. They have even been characterized further and the datasheet will tell you the serotype subtypes (e.g. ayw2, ayw3, ayw4, ayr, adw2, adw4, adrq+, adrq-)also.
