Immunogen Recombinant protein corresponding to the latent nuclear antigen-1 molecule of HHV8.
Clone LN53
Isotype IgG2c
Specificity This antibody stains with ORF-73 of Human Herpesvirus 8 (HHV8). HHV8 is the likely etiological agent of Kaposi's sarcoma (KS). HHV8 encodes a latent nuclear antigen (LNA), which is the product of the viral gene orf 73. LNA is capable of forming a complex with retinoblastoma susceptibility gene product, which may be related to its oncogenic activity. Cellular Localization: Nuclear. Species Reactivity: Tested: Human.
Purification Purified
Alternative Name Herpes Virus Type 8 / HHV8
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.
Alternate names: 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.
