Epstein-Barr Virus (LMP)Catalog number: EB100
The antibody cocktail is positive for the latent membrane protein-1 (LMP1) of the Epstein-Barr Virus. It strongly reacts with EBV-infected lymphoblastoid cell lines and infected B-cell immunoblasts in infectious Mononucleose and atypical lymphoproliferations in immunosuppressed patients. It is positive in app. 25-30 % undifferentiated nasopharyngeal carcinomas and in 40-50% of Hodgkin's diseases. Due to the lack of LMP in Burkitt's disease the cocktail is unreactive with these cells. Epstein Barr Virus is a member of the herpes viridae family and is involved in the development of infectious mononucleosis. EBV infections are also discussed in connection with the induction of several tumours. Generally EBV is found in Burkitt's lymphoma and in nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Additionally it is found in 40-50 % of Hodgkin lymphoma and app. 20-30 % of anaplastic CD30+ large cell lymphoma. Hydrophilic C-terminal end of the 60 kDa late membrane protein 1 of Eppstein Barr Virus.
Immunogen: Fusion protein of beta-galactosidase and EBV-late membrane antigen
Antibody solution in stabilizing phosphate buffer pH 7.3. Contains 0.09 % sodium azide**. The volume is sufficient for at least 100 immunohistochemical tests (100 µl working solution / test). Use appropriate antibody diluent e.g. BIOLOGO Art .No. PU002.
Purification Method: Antibody solution in stabilizing phosphate buffer pH 7.3. Contains 0.09 % sodium azide**. The volume is sufficient for at least 100 immunohistochemical tests (100 µl working solution / test). Use appropriate antibody diluent e.g. BIOLOGO Art .No. PU002.
Secondary Reagents: We recommend the use of BIOLOGO's Universal Staining System DAB (Art. No. DA005) or AEC (Art.-No. AE005).
Concentration: 50 µg/ml
Species Reactivity: Epstein Barr Virus
Incubation Time: 60 min at RT
Working Concentration: (liquid conc.) 1:10 - 1:20
Pre-Treatment: For pre-treatment Pronase (0,1%) is recommended, however unmasking on citrate basis (DE000) or glycol basis (DE007) will also improve the staining intensity. Cryostat sections and cell smears should be fixed with acetone since the antibody will not react with native antigen.
