Alternative Name Herpes Virus Type 8 / HHV8
Target Type Virus
Background HHV8 has been found to be associated with three different diseases observed in AIDS patients, kaposi's sarcoma, primary effusion lymphoma (which is a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma affecting the body cavities) and multicentric Castleman's disease. To date there is much evidence to support a direct role for HHV8 in kaposi's sarcoma.Synonyms: HHV-8, KHSV
Application Notes Immunohistochemistry: Use at 1/25-1/50 dilution in an ABC method (30 to 60 minutes atroom temperature). Formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections require high temperature antigenunmasking with 10 mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 prior to immunostaining. Recommended Positive Control: Kaposi's sarcoma.
Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions are dependent on conditions and should be determined by the user.
