Mouse anti Influenza A H5 Antigen antibody, clone 11A9 detects haemagglutinin H5 from the Influenza A virus H5N1. Influenza A belongs to the Orthomyxoviridae family, and is a negative sense single-stranded RNA virus which results in respiratory disease. Haemagglutinin is an antigenic glycoprotein which allows viral attachment and entry into the cell. Sixteen subtypes of haemagglutinin (H1-H16) have been described, of which H1, H2 and H3 infect humans. H5 and H7 normally result in avian disease, with some highly pathogenic H5N1 strains causing 100% mortality in poultry. H5N1 has in some cases mutated to infect humans, with 60% mortality. Haemagglutinin is one of the most medically relevant antigens on influenza as it is a target for antiviral drugs and antibodies.
Perservative Stabilisers: 0.09% Sodium Azide (NaN3)
Preparation: Purified IgG prepared by affinity chromatography on Protein G from tissue culture supernatant. Immunogen: Purified avian influenza virus type A (H5N1)
Fusion Partners: Spleen and lymph node cells from immunised Balb/C mice were fused with cells of the Sp2/0 myeloma cell line.
Buffer Solution: Phosphate buffered saline
Target Species: Viral. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing INFLUENZA A H5 ANTIGEN are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as INFLUENZA A H5 ANTIGEN may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results.
