Alternate Names for Influenza A Virus Antibody (GA2B)

  • Flu


Influenza virus type A matrix protein, also known as M1, is composed of a 252 amino acid sequence and is type-specific in influenza viruses. It is located inside the viral lipid envelope and plays a key role in virus assembly and replication. M1 can be isolated from particles by removing the envelope with detergents and reducing the pH to 4.0. Influenza viruses are a common and widely spread infectious agent. Like many other viruses, influenza virus are constantly undergoing mutations and thereby avoiding the immune system. The Influenza A Virus M proteins form a continuous shell on the inner side of the lipid bilayer, maintaining the structural integrity of the virus particle through hydrophobic interactions.

FAQs for Influenza A Virus Antibody (NB100-66552). (Showing 1 - 1 of 1 FAQs).

  1. I am looking for an antibody to be used against the influenza A M1 (matrix) protein of the PR8 strain, both in western blot and immunofluorescence microscopy. Your antibody NB100-66552 appears to be well suited for this. However, I want to use it for mutant proteins that differ in amino acids 97 and 100. Both these amino acids are located on the surface of the intact M1 protein. If the antibody binds near these amino acids, a difference in binding efficiency might occur that could influence my results. Therefore, I was wondering if you know to which part of the M1 protein this antibody binds.
    • The lab has informed me that the epitope has not been mapped. I am very sorry that we do not have any helpful information! (We unfortunately do no epitope map our antibodies. All specific interactions and bindings are determined by experiment and will be listed in the Specificity section on our datasheet. If the specificity you are looking for is not listed, it has not yet been tested. If would like to try any of our antibodies in your experiment utilizing untested applications or species, you would qualify for our Innovators Reward Program.
