PA1-4954 detects the HIV-1 p17 protein in HIV samples.
PA1-4954 has been successfully used in Western blot and ELISA procedures. By Western blot this antibody detects a ~17 kDa protein, and a ~55 kDa protein, corresponding respectively to HIV-p17 and to its precursor p55, in HIV samples.
PA1-4954 immunogen corresponds to the recombinant protein which was over-expressed in E. coli with a plasmid carrying the Gag p17 coding region of the HIV-1 virus.
Recombinant HIV-1 Gag p17 protein (Cat. # RP-4914 or RP-4915) can be purchased for control experiments in Western blot assays.
HIV-1 Gag p17 is the matrix protein of AIDS virus HIV-1 and is produced by the digestion of its precursor Gag p55 by HIV-1 protease. This protein is indispensable to the reproduction of AIDS virus and constitutes an essential element for the of AIDS virus particle construction.
