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.

Immunofluorescence analysis of HeLa cells staining Influenza A Virus M1 using ab22396.
Cells were treated with either 20 µg/ml Prostaglandin A (PGA) or EtOH vehicle control, 3 hours post infection by Influenza A Virus, then fractionated at 9 hours post infection before analysis by immunofluorescence.
