  • Relevance
    Influenza A virus is a major public health threat. Novel influenza virus strains caused by genetic drift and viral recombination emerge periodically to which humans have little or no immunity, resulting in devastating pandemics. Influenza A can exist in a variety of animals; however it is in birds that all subtypes can be found. These subtypes are classified based on the combination of the virus coat glycoproteins hemagglutinin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA) subtypes. During 1997, an H5N1 avian influenza virus was determined to be the cause of death in 6 of 18 infected patients in Hong Kong. There was some evidence of human to human spread of this virus, but it is thought that the transmission efficiency was fairly low. HA interacts with cell surface proteins containing oligosaccharides with terminal sialyl residues. Virus isolated from a human infected with the H5N1 strain in 1997 could bind to oligosaccharides from human as well as avian sources, indicating its species jumping ability. Influenza A Virus Hemagglutinin antibodies recognize the influenza hemagglutinin epitope, which has been used extensively as a general epitope tag in expression vectors. The extreme specificity of this antibody allows for unambiguous identification and quantitative analysis of the tagged protein.

Thank you for your inquiry.

I attached the Certificates of Complianceforthese antibodies asPDF.

I wish you and your customer a good weekend.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Please find enclosed the requested CoC for these antibodies (ab8262, ab66187, ab66190) as attachments.

If you need any further assistance in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your enquiry and your interest.

We can provide the concentration of these products which are listed on the on-line datasheets. Currently, we can't provide the titer.

Let m know if you need the CoC without the titer dat...

Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately the epitope for the antibody ab8262 has not been mapped, therefore we do not know which part of the protein is recognized by the antibody. Sorry I couldn't help you more on this occasion,

This antibody has been successfully tested for application in IHC-frozen sections, but unfortunately an image is not available at this time. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions.

Thank you for your enquiry. ab8262 was raised using the immunogen influenza A virus (H1N1), strain A/Kazakhstan/Seagull/470. I do not have specific details about the cross reactivity of this antiserum. However, I can tell you that according to ...
