RDI Divison of Fitzgerald Industries Intl offers a wide line of antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, histochemistry, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.
CAT#: RDI-TRK3RE21-8C5 and RDI-TRK3RE21-9C5 or RDI-TRK3RE21-8B10
PRICE: $375.00/mg $344.00/mg 2-9mg $281.00/mg 10+ Bulk on request
Clone: 8C5 & 9C5 or 8B10
These clones have been derived from the hybridization of Sp2/0 myeloma cells
with spleen cells of a Balb/c mice immunized with purified RSV virus, strain
Specificity: Two clones out of this panel 8C5 and 9C5 we recommend for immunoassay. In Western blot Mab 8C5 reacts with protein, having Mr 90 K, that corresponds in mobility to protein G. Mab 9C5 specificity was determined by competitive ELISA with Mab 131-2A and 92-11C (CDC, Atlanta): they are directed to the same F1a epitope, localized on F-protein. Mab 8C5 and 9C5 may be used in sandwich ELISA for RSV detection both with themselves and in a mixed combination, taking into account that 9C5 is especially suitable for conjugation.
Mab 8C5 and 9C5 have virus-neutralizing activity, 8C5 block RSV-target cells binding, 9C5 hampers the virus penetration into the cell.
Clone 8B10 can be used for detection of incomplete virus assembly. Antibodies of clone 8B10 are directed to N protein, which belongs to nucleoproteid complex of virus. Epitope of this antibody is very unstable. The Mab is failing to recognize the N-protein epitope of immature and destroyed virions, which indicates a conformation dependence of the 8B10 binding site. It reacts well only with mature virison with completely assembled nucelocapsids.
Mouse isotype: mIgG2b (9C5 or 8C5), mIgG1 (8B10)
