Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus Type 2 (BVDV-2) MAb E2 gp53
Binds to the E2 (gp53) protein of Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus Type 2 (BVDV-2). Reacts primarily with BVDV-2 viruses. IgG2a isotype. Can be used as a typing reagent for BVDV-2 using indirect immunofluoresence or indirect immunoperoxidase reactions. This monoclonal antibody has been reported to be reactive in Western blots. 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, 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.
