Target

  • Relevance
    Vaccinia virus is an Orthopoxvirus, containing double stranded DNA. Fusion protein plays an important role in the entry of enveloped virus into cells. As vaccinia virus has a wide host range, it is conceivable that certain cellular components that are ubiquitously expressed on the cell mediate virus infection. The study of the entry process, attachment, fusion and the proteins and receptors involved is complex. During vaccinia virus infection, the fusion process is attributed to the action of the 14KDa protein (A27L). The N terminus of this protein recognises heparan sulfate on the cell surface. It interacts with the negative charges of sulfates of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). Therefore, antibodies that recognize this 14KDa protein are able to neutralize vaccinia virus infection and enable identification other viral and cellular proteins which participate in the vaccinia virus entry process.

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry. Ab21098 - Mouse monoclonal [TV46] to Vaccinia Virus - reacts with a 27 kDa protein and is weakly reactive with 57 kDa and 6 1kDa proteins in Western blot. The identity of the proteins have not been determined. Ab21039 - Rabbit polyclonal to Vaccinia Virus (Biotin) - is a polyclonal antibody and will detect multiple epitopes. The individual proteins have not been identified. This antibody reacts to Lister, Wyeth, New York City and MVA strains of Vaccinia virus. Ab20041 is no longer available as part of our catalog.
