Biological ActivityThis antibody can be used in ELISA (1:1,000 dilution), Western blot (1:1,000 dilution), and indirect immunofluorescence (1:500). It recognizes a 50 kDa protein corresponding to ISAV fusion protein. ISAV is an enveloped virus that belongs to the family Orthomyxoviridae and genus Isavirus. Its genoma comprises eight negative-sense, single-stranded RNA segments and encodes four major structural proteins including the matrix, the nucleoprotein, and two membrane glycoproteins (hemagglutinin-esterase and fusion protein gp50). ISAV infects mainly endothelial cells and leukocytes and causes a multisystemic disease characterized by high mortality with exophthalmia, pale gills, ascites, hemorrhagic liver necrosis, and renal interstitial hemorrhage.
FormulationSolution at 1.0 mg/mL in PBS.
