Parainfluenza Virus (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
IgG2a Monoclonal [251/12A (PAR1)]
Parainfluenza 1 fusion protein.
Recognizes an epitope within the fusion protein of parainfluenza virus 1 (HPIV-1), an enveloped single-stranded RNA virus of the Paramyxoviridae family. Parainfluenza viruses are genetically and antigenically divided into the four types HPIV1-4, with HPIV-1, -2 and -3 being major causative agents of lower respiratory infections in the young and immunologically vulnerable. The fusion protein of all HPIV, is a 60-66kD surface glycoprotein, integral in the fusion of virus host-cell membranes, and the subsequent infection of a host cell by the viral nucleocapsid. Can be used in IFA typing studies for the detection of parainfluenza virus types 1, 2 and 3.
Store at 4°C or -20°C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
