Cat.No. HYB 156-01B
Mouse monoclonal antibody, biotinylated
HYB 156-01 is specific for influenza A virus nucleoprotein and does not cross-react with influenza B virus.
Unpurified influenza A virus (H1N1 A/PR/8/34) for primary intranasal immunization, boosted intravenously with purified influenza A virus disrupted with Triton X-100 for 45 min at 37°C.
100 µL, 1 mg/mL +/- 15%. See Certificate of Analysis for details.
Influenza viruses are common and highly infectious human pathogens. They are constantly mutating to modify their antigenicity and avoid elimination by immunity to previous generations of virus. The nucleoprotein of influenza A virus is a basic, phosphorylated multimeric protein consisting of 498 aa subunits that encapsidate the viral RNA genome to form a ribonucleoprotein particle.
