Canine Distemper Virus monoclonal antibody specific for nucleoprotein (inclusions). IgG2B isotype (kappa light chain). Cross-reacts with measles virus. Does not react with Canine Adenovirus Type 2 (CAV-2), Canine Coronavirus (CCV), Canine Parainfluenza Virus (CPI), or Canine Parvovirus (CPV). The concentration is 1.0 mg/ml in phosphate-buffered saline, preserved with sodium azide. Suitable for immunofluorescence, western blot, immunohistochemistry, capture ELISA. Immunofluorescence staining is cytoplasmic only (no nuclear staining) and is intense; inclusion bodies are stained most intensely. Using ultracentrifuge-precipitated CDV in reducing gels, it Western blots giving major bands at 76, 68, 54 and 32 kD. Immunohistochemistry has been performed using paraffin-embedded tissues to detect CDV.
