Binds all strains of BVDV type 1 and type 2 tested thus far. Suitable for use in indirect immunofluorescence, ELISA, and immunohistochemistry on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues. This monoclonal antibody is produced as mouse ascites fluid, clarified by centrifugation, and filtered through a 0.2 micrometer filter. The concentration is 1.0 mg/ml in phosphate-buffered saline, containing 4 mg/ml BSA, preserved with sodium azide.
Note: BVDV-1 genotypes usually produce only mild diarrhea in immunocompetent cattle, while BVDV-2 genotypes can produce thrombocytopenia, hemorrhages, and acute fatal disease. The viruses of either genotype may exist as one of two biotypes, cytopathic or noncytopathic.
