Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab124004 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
ab124004 is a sucrose-purified version which is enriched for full HSV particles (including membrane and capsid). This is best when just the structural capsid and membrane proteins are desired with much less contaminating cellular material.
Inactivation: 0.1% Triton x-100. Tested by passage on permissive cells for 5 days yielding no CPE,
Vortex before use.
This protein is derived from a pathogenic organism, and may be involved in a disease process, consequently exposure may have adverse health effects.

RelevanceHerpes simplex type 1 (HSV-1) belongs to a family that includes HSV-2, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and Varicella zoster (chicken pox) virus amongst others. HSV-1 and HSV-2 are extremely difficult to distinguish from each other. Members of this family have a characteristic virion structure. The double stranded DNA genome is contained within an icosahedral capsid embedded in a proteinaceous layer (tegument) and surrounded by a lipid envelope, derived from the nuclear membrane of the last host, which is decorated with virus-specific glycoproteins spikes. These viruses are capable of entering a latent phase where the host shows no visible sign of infection and levels of infectious agent become very low.
