|Recombinant HPV16 L1 virus like particle|
|0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with 5% trehalose|
|This antibody was produced from a hybridoma resulting from the fusion of a mouse myeloma with B cells obtained from a mouse immunized with purified, recombinant HPV16 L1 virus like particle. The IgG fraction of the cell culture supernatant was purified by Protein A affinity chromatography.|
|Human Papillomavirus (HPV)|
|ELISA, IHC-P, IP, IHC-Fr, IF
(Antibody's applications have not been validated with corresponding viruses. Optimal concentrations/dilutions should be determined by the end user.)|
ELISA: 0.5-1 μg/ml
This antibody can be used at 0.5-1 μg/ml with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect HPV16 VLP (A virus like particle formed of 72 L1 pentamers). And it doesn't recognize denatured HPV16 L1 (the main capsid protein of HPV16, 56KD).
|This antibody can be stored at 2℃-8℃ for one month without detectable loss of activity. Antibody products are stable for twelve months from date of receipt when stored at -20℃ to -70℃. Preservative-Free.|
Sodium azide is recommended to avoid contamination (final concentration 0.05%-0.1%). It is toxic to cells and should be disposed of properly. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Papillomaviruses are highly species-specific and can cause squamous epithelial and fibroepithelial tumors in their hosts. Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) are associated with benign and malignant hyperproliferation of cells, with a wide variety of clinical manifestations ranging from condyloma acuminata to cervical carcinoma. HPV infection is the most common sexually transmitted disease. More than 40 HPV types so far identified are known to infect the genital tract. Genital HPVs are divided into `low risk' HPVs such as HPV 6 and 11 and ‘high risk’ HPV types such as 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45 and 52, 58 which are responsible for more than 95% of HPV-induced cervical cancer. Vaccination against these high risk types seems to be the most feasible prevention for cervical cancer. Indeed, clinical trials have shown prophylactic HPV vaccines to be effective against HPV infection, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), and genital warts, but protection is type-specific and the currently developed vaccines target only a few types. These vaccines are based on papillomavirus-like particles (VLPs) composed of the major capsid protein, L1. The L1 protein self assembles into VLPs when expressed at high levels in eukaryotic or insect cells. VLPs are composed of 360 copies of L1 protein organized into 72 pentamers, so called capsomeres, to form particles which are immunologically indistinguishable from native virions. Experimentally induced VLP antisera have been shown to be mostly typespecific with respect to neutralization. Minor cross-neutralization has been observed only between closely related HPV types, e.g. HPV6 and 11, HPV18 and 45, or HPV16 and 31. Structure analysis has revealed the presence of several hyper variable loops on the outer surface of the capsid. With a few exceptions, all HPV-neutralizing monoclonal antibodies analyzed so far are type-specific and recognize conformational epitopes within surface-exposed hyper variable loops of the major capsid protein L1.
