  • Target

    • Relevance

      Herpes simplex type 2 (HSV2) belongs to a family that includes HSV1, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and Varicella zoster (chicken pox) virus. HSV1 and HSV2 are extremely difficult to distinguish from each other. These viruses have a DNA genome, an icosahedral protein coat and are encased in a lipid membrane derived from the nuclear membrane of the last host. 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. During the latent phase the viral DNA is integrated into the genome of the host cell.

    Question
    Answer

    The concentration of this product is 4 - 5mg/ml. The product is diluted to 5mg/ml and then vialed. Because other test methods can give different protein measurement results, the concentration is reported as 4 - 5mg/ml. The concentration of ab20971 is determined for the antibody after FITC-labeling. This is measured using OD280 with extinction coefficient E^0.1% = 1.4. The OD280 method measures total protein and therefore is measuring the antibody. However the FITC molecule is very small and does not significantly alter the concentration.
