It has recently been shown that SARS is caused by a human coronavirus. Human coronaviruses are the major cause of upper respiratory tract illness in humans, such as the common cold. Coronaviruses are positive-stranded RNA viruses, featuring the largest viral RNA genomes known to date (27-31 kb). The first step in coronavirus infection is binding of the viral spike protein, a 139-kDa protein, to certain receptors on host cells. The spike protein is the main surface antigen of the coronavirus. The most prominent protein in the culture supernatants infected with SARS virus is a 46 kDa nucleocapsid protein. This suggests that the nucleocapsid protein is a major immunogen that may be useful for early diagnostics.
Lyophilized from PBS.
The antibody was developed by immunizing rabbits with recombinant Full Length SARS COV-2 Nucleocapsid Protein.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Full Length CoV-2 Polyclonal Antibody in sterile PBS not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Full Length CoV-2 Polyclonal Antibody although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution CoV-2 Polyclonal Antibody should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
