Human T-lymphotropic virus (HTLV) is a human, single-stranded RNA retrovirus that causes
T-cell leukemia and T-cell lymphoma. The virus activates a subset of T-helper cellscalled Th1cells. The result is a proliferation of Th1 cells and overproduction of Th1 related cytokines (mainly IFN-gamma and TNF-alpha). Feedback mechanisms of these cytokines cause a suppression of the Th2 lymphocytes and a reduction of Th2 cytokine production (mainly
IL-4, IL-5, IL-10 and IL-13). The end result is a reduction in the ability of the infected host to mount an adequate immune response to invading organisms that require a predominantly
Th2 dependant response (these include parasitic infections and production of mucosal and humoral antibodies).
HTLV-1 p24 is usually used for clinical diagnosis and forms both monomer and dimer on
SDS-PAGE gel but the majority of protein is a dimer.


HTLV-1 p24 Recombinant produced in E.Coli covers full length of HTLV-1 p24 and contains 188 amino acids having a molecular size 21kDa.
HTLV-1 p24 is purified by proprietary chromatographic technique.


Escherichia Coli.
