Description: Gene cloned from T-cell-tropic HIV-1 MN strain and the full length recombinant envelope gp120 glycoprotein produced in the Baculovirus Expression System.

 

Purification: This protein is purified by immuno-affinity chromatography to >95% purity as determined by SDS-PAGE, reduced.

 

Specificity: This protein binds to murine monoclonal antibodies of defined epitope specificity and HIV-1 converted human serum polyclonal antibodies in ELISA and Western ELISA.

 

Biological Activity: This protein binds to human T-cell receptor CD4 in ELISA and Western ELISA as determined by CD4/gp120/Anti gp120 mAb-peroxidase capture ELISA. This protein activates human T-Lymphocytes (CD4+, CD4-), in vitro, as measured by RNA synthesis during G0 to G1 transition phase of antigen-binding competent cells.

 

Application and Instructions for use:

Recommended concentrations for use are approximate values. A dose dependent response assay should be performed to determine the optimal concentration for use in specific applications. ELISA and Western ELISA require 10-100ng protein depending on the nature and affinity of the detection reagent. Human serum polyclonal antibodies yield titers of 1:1000 or greater at 10-100ng of immobilized protein under standard ELISA conditions.
