Our customer some questions with antibodies ab2741, ab235, ab39716. He want to know which subtype virus that these antibodis can detect? Does these antibodis detect nature protein or denatue protein?
Asked on Sep 26 2007
Thank you for your message. Unfortuantley, I am unable to obtain precise information about which subtypes of Hepatitis B virus these antibodies detect. We aim to provide as much information as possible to customers, and I am sorry this is not possible on this occasion. With regards to whether the antibodies detect native or denatured protein, you should always use reducing and denaturing conditions unless stated otherwise on the datasheet. Please also check the information I have provided below for futher details. I did manage to obtain the following information on these antibodies, which I hope you will find helpful: Reference for ab2741. This reference uses the antibody in IP and WB procedures. M. Melegari, et al. Cloning and Characterization of a Novel Hepatitis B Virus x Binding Protein That Inhibits Viral Replication. J. Virology, 72(3): 1737-1743, 1998. http://jvi.asm.org/cgi/content/full/72/3/1737 Hepatitis B Virus X antigen antibody ab39716 was tested only with recombinant antigen in WB (reducing and nonreducing) and for immunoprecipitation: with antigen from HeLa cells transfected with HBX tagged with c-myc. Antibody ab235 reacts with both the native and denatured HBX antigens. For further details of this clone please see the following references: Pal J, Somogyi C, Szmolenszky A A, Szekeres G, Sipos J, Hegedus G, Martzinovits I, Molnar J, Nemeth P.

PMID: 9304871 I hope this information is helpful. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesiate to contact us again.
