Description: The AcV1 monoclonal antibody reacts with the gp64 envelope protein of the baculovirus Autographa californica (AcMNPV). The gp64 envelope protein is essential for virus infectivity and is expressed on the surface of baculovirus-infected cells within six hours of infection. The AcV1 antibody can be used in flow cytometry-based viral titration experiments.
Applications Reported: The AcV1 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. This antibody can be used in identifying virally-infected insect cells.
Applications Tested: The AcV1 antibody has been tested by flow cytometry on baculovirus infected insect cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 1 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
Baculoviruses are known to infect invertebrates, with over 600 species having been described. Immature (larval) forms of moth species are the most common hosts, but these viruses have also been found infecting sawflies, mosquitoes, and shrimp. Although baculoviruses are capable of entering mammalian cells in culture, they are not known to be capable of replication in mammalian or other vertebrate animal cells. The gp64 envelope protein is essential for virus infectivity and is expressed on the surface of baculovirus-infected cells within six hours of infection.
