HPV Cocktail Broad Spectrum (HPV-1, 6, 11, 16-16, 18 and 31)
Please note that this antibody is an oligoclonal antibody. It is a cocktail of monoclonal antibodies that have been carefully selected. Oligoclonal antibodies have not only the specificity and batch-to-batch consistency of a monoclonal antibody, but also have the advantage of the sensitivity of a polyclonal antibody due to their ability to recognize multiple epitopes on an antigen. This cocktail is a mix of BPV-1/1H8 (IgG) and CAMVIR (IgG2a).
The broad spectrum HPV antibody was produced (1H8) against SDS-disrupted bovine papillomavirus type 1 (BPV-1) and used to identify the product of the L1 open reading frame (ORF) of BPV-1. IH8 was found to be reactive with purified major capsid protein (MCP). The antibody was tested with ELISA and with an immunofluorescent technique and detected HPV-1, 6, 11, 16-16, 18, and 31 in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded biopsy specimens. The CAMVIR-1 antibody was raised against the major capsid protein L1 of human papillomavirus type 16, using a recombinant vaccinia virus that expresses the L1 protein, as a target for screening. This antibody, designated CAMVIR-1, reacted with a 56 kilodalton protein in cells infected with L1-vaccinia virus, and the protein was present in HPV16. This antibody cocktail may also work in PAP smears, but has not been tested. A panel of p16 and Ki-67 can be used for further evaluation.
