Background of the antigen
Hepatitis G virus is from a group of viruses called GB viruses (GB virus A, GB virus B and GB virus C) and is also designated as GB virus C (GBV C). HGV is a positive stranded RNA virus, with a genome of 10 KB and appears, on the basis of genome length and organisation, to be a member of the Flaviviridae and distinct from the hepatitis C virus (HCV). HGV infection appears to be transmitted following receipt of blood from HGV RNA positive donors, however, these patients have only moderate liver enzyme elevations and do not develop chronic liver disease.
For facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.Alexa Fluor 488 has the same range to that of fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC), yet the Anti-HGV Polyprotein has a very high photo stability. As a result of this photo stability, it has turned into an antibody for fluorescent microscopy and FACS FLOW cytometry. It is distinguished in the FL1 of a FACS-Calibur or FACScan. Also Alexa Fluor 488 is pH stable.If you buy Antibodies supplied by Bioss Primary Conjugated Antibodies. ALEXA FLUOR they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
