Isolated from circulating B cells of an individual exposed to equine HeV vaccine5.
≥ 5.0 mg/ml
< 1.0 EU/mg as determined by the LAL method
≥95% monomer by analytical SEC
This recombinant monoclonal antibody is aseptically packaged and formulated in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline (150 mM NaCl) PBS pH 7.2 - 7.4 with no carrier protein, potassium, calcium or preservatives added. Due to inherent biochemical properties of antibodies, certain products may be prone to precipitation over time. Precipitation may be removed by aseptic centrifugation and/or filtration.
Storage and Handling
Functional grade preclinical antibodies may be stored sterile as received at 2-8°C for up to one year. For longer term storage, aseptically aliquot in working volumes without diluting and store at ≥ -70°C. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles.
Country of Origin
Standard Overnight on Blue Ice.
Other Applications Reported In Literature ?
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
(Needs to be added)
Henipavirus spp. are enveloped, single-stranded RNA viruses in the family Paramyxovirus1. Five species have been identified, two of which, Hendra virus (HeV) and Nipah virus (NiV), are highly virulent emerging pathogens with high case-fatality ratios. The other three species, Cedar virus, Ghanaian bat virus, and Mojiang virus are not known to cause human disease. Pteropid bats are the reservoir host. HeV is transmitted by direct contact with infected horses, their fluids, or tissues1. Horses are infected by exposure to pteropid bats. NiV is transmitted by contact with infected pigs or bats and person-to-person. Both HeV and NiV cause severe influenza-like illness that can progress to encephalitis.
