RelevanceInfluenza virus type A matrix protein, also known as M1, is composed of a 252 amino acid sequence and is type-specific in influenza viruses. It is located inside the viral lipid envelope and plays a key role in virus assembly and replication. M1 can be isolated from particles by removing the envelope with detergents and reducing the pH to 4.0. Influenza viruses are a common and widely spread infectious agent. Like many other viruses, influenza virus are constantly undergoing mutations and thereby avoiding the immune system. The Influenza A Virus M proteins form a continuous shell on the inner side of the lipid bilayer, maintaining the structural integrity of the virus particle through hydrophobic interactions.

Immunocytochemical immunoflurescence analysis of Formaldehyde-fixed human kidney epithelial cells, labelling Influenza A Virus M1 matrix protein with ab20910 at a dilution of 1/500 incubated fro 1 hour at 18°C in 1% FCS PBS. Blocking was with 1% serum incubated for 30 minutes at 18°C. Secondary was a donkey anti-goat Alexa Fluor® 568 undiluted. Cells were transfected with either GFP-M1 or pCDNA2-NP, as indicated on the left hand side of the figure. 24h later cells were fixed and stained for M1 using ab20910 (red) or NP using ab20343 (grey). The abcam 20910 detected M1 in cells transfected with GFP-M1 but not pCDNA3-NP. Moreover, the level of co-localization between GFP-M1 and ab20910 was quite good.
