  • Relevance

    Epstein Barr virus (EBV) is a member of the herpes virus family and one of the most common human viruses. Most people become infected with EBV during their lives. Primary infections usually results in infectious mononucleosis (glandular fever) but the virus can also lay dormant in B lymphocytes and when reactivated become associated with more serious disease such as Burkitt's lymphoma, nasopharyngeal carcinoma and Hodgkin's disease.
  • Cellular localization

    Nuclear

Customer reviews and Q&As

Answer

The protein is a fragment of the early antigen region of EBV, and has a proprietary tag (26 kDa). So, it is unlikely to be of use as a western blot positive control for endogenous protein. In any case, western blotting is listed on the datasheet as an application because the protein is at least capable of being detected in blots. Its utility is more for ELISA than westerns. Please let me know if you have any questions.
