SARS-Associated Coronavirus Matrix Recombinant
- Product Code: SARS-251
- Synonyms/Product Alternate Names: SARS Matrix
Introduction: SARS Coronavirus is an enveloped virus containing three outer structural proteins, namely the membrane (M), envelope (E), and spike (S) proteins. The spike (S)-glycoprotein of the virus interacts with a cellular receptor and mediates membrane fusion to allow viral entry into susceptible target cells. Accordingly, S-protein plays an important role in virus infection cycle and is the primary target of neutralizing antibodies.
Description: The E.Coli derived 30kDa recombinant protein contains the Matrix protein 182-216 amino acids immunodominant regions.
Purification Method: SARS Matrix protein was purified by proprietary chromatographic technique.
Formulation: 50mM Tris-HCl, 60mM NaCl, and 50% glycerol.
Stability: SARS Matrix protein is shipped at ambient temperature.
Upon arrival, store at -20C.
Specificity: SARS Matrix protein is Immunoreactive with sera of SARS-infected individuals.
Applications: SARS Matrix antigen can be used for ELISA and Western blots, excellent antigen for detection of SARS with minimal specificity problems.
