  • Relevance

    Vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV), an enveloped RNA virus from the Rhabdoviridae family, is released from the plasma membrane of host cells by a process called budding. The glycoprotein (VSV-g) contains a domain in its extracellular membrane proximal stem that appears to be needed for efficient VSV budding.

Thank you for your enquiry and your interest in our products.

We have a few antibodies which detect VSV-G and are suitable for Western applications. Some of them are unconjugated so it is essential to apply a compatible secondary antibody for detection:

ab1874: https://www.abcam.com/vsv-g-tag-antibody-ab1874.html

ab27026: https://www.abcam.com/vsv-g-tag-antibody-ab27026.html

ab50549: https://www.abcam.com/vsv-g-tag-antibody-p5d4-ab50549.html

Some others are HRP-labelled so can be applied without any secondary antibodies:

ab49610: https://www.abcam.com/vsv-g-tag-antibody-p5d4-hrp-ab49610.html

Currently, we do not sel lpositive control cell lysate for VSV-G. As long as the cells you are planning to use express the tag sequence: YTDIEMNRLGK; these antibodies should work fine.

WESTERN BLOT TECHNICAL ENQUIRY - Wed 11 Feb 2004, 10:42hrs ========================================================== ANTIBODY CODE ab3556 BATCH NUMBER 37614 ORDER NUMBER -- NOT SPECIFIED -- DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM Non-specific band I immunoprecipitate 2 VSV-G tagged proteins using a mouse monoclonal antibody and want to detect my immunoprecipitatd proteins with the VSV G hrp rabbit polyclonal antibody. I have no problem to detect the first one (so I know that my immunoprecipitation is OK), but the problem is that at the size of my second VSV-G tagged proteins there are plenty of non specific bands, so I detect a band even in my controls where I don't express this second protein. So I cannot prove that I have immunoprecipitated my second protein too. I tried different dilutions of the antibody but this does not solve my problem. Can you indicate me your Western Blot conditions? Furthermore, this antibody reveals the heavy and light chains. I wanted to know if this antody is known to cross-react ? Thank you Nathalie Franck SAMPLE HeLa cell extract incubated with a VSV-G monoclonal antibody (which works well) PRIMARY ANTIBODY VSV-g hrp tested at different dilutions 1/1000-1/5000 SECONDARY ANTIBODY none DETECTION METHOD super signal (Pierce) POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE CONTROLS USED Negative control: Lysates transfected with a control protein also VSV-G tagged. I detect this protein (no contaminating bands at this size (100 kDa). But at the size of my protein of interest, I detect a contaminating band in my negative control ANTIBODY STORAGE CONDITIONS Storage: 4°C SAMPLE PREPARATION Buffer containing 150 mM NaCL, Tris 10 mM, NP40 0,5%, Triton-X-100 1%, EDTA, EGTA, Na3VO4, PMSF, protease inhibitor (Roche) AMOUNT OF PROTEIN LOADED 15-20 µg of total cell lysate or 10 µl of immunoprecipitation product (I use 500 µg for one immunoprecipitation; beads are respuspended in 25 µl of SB2X ELECTROPHORESIS/GEL CONDITIONS SDS-PAGE 12,5% TRANSFER AND BLOCKING CONDITIONS Transfer 45 minutes 300 mA.

Thank you very much for your patience. I am working with the originator of ab3556 to help figure out what may be going on with this particular antibody. We have a few more questions however that will help us out. 1) What exactly does your negative control consist of? 2) How are you isolating the monoclonal antibody/VSV-g tagged protein? 3) Do you isolate by eluting the protein or centrifuging? 4) How do you know it is recognizing the heavy and light chains? 5)Have you tried any inhibition studies?
