Work with LifeSpan to design a custom immunohistochemistry to address your specific biological question. Outsource the entire localization process without having to
worry about finding and characterizing target specific antibodies, sourcing and validating difficult-to-find tissues, and having the ability to interpret the resulting
immunostaining in relation to complex human pathologies.
TCR Screening Services
Test your therapeutic antibodies in immunohistochemistry against a broad panel of normal frozen human tissue types in order to determine potential unintended binding.
Our non-GLP TCR services are designed on the FDA recommendation outlined in their "Points to Consider in the Manufacture and Testing of Monoclonal Antibody Products for Human Use".
Mouse Monoclonal [clone TV43] (IgG2a) to Vaccinia Virus
Western blot, ELISA
Vaccinia Virus (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
IgG2a Monoclonal [TV43]
Specificity and Use
Vaccinia Virus antibody was raised against live dry smallpox vaccine.
Recognizes the Vaccinia virus, a large poxvirus. Poxviruses are DNA viruses that replicate in the cytoplasm of the host cell and therefore need a large genome to encode for the various proteins involved in DNA replication and transcription. Vaccinia virus infection is very mild and generally causes no symptoms in healthy individuals. Vaccinia infection initiates immune responses that also protects against smallpox, a much more severe disease with a high mortality rate. Vaccinia is best known for its use as a vaccine against smallpox, which was officially declared eradicated in 1980. There is some concern that smallpox might be re-introduced as a biological weapon, as such it might still pose a threat to humanity. Recognizes a 27kD protein in Western blotting of the following viruses: Vaccinia virus strain Elstree, Ectromelia virus strain K-1, Cowpox virus strain Grishak. It might also recognize the same protein in the Smallpox virus.
Western Blot: LS-C58383 detects a band of approximately 27kD under non-reducing conditions.
