MA1-7587 detects HIV1 from virus samples.
MA1-7587 has been successfully used in ELISA, Western blot, flow cytometry, and immunoprecipitation procedures.
The MA1-7587 immunogen is a purified recombinant HIV1 p55/17 protein.
HIV-1 Gag p55 is a precursor protein of several proteins that form the core structure of AIDS virus, indispensable to its reproduction. P55 is digested by HIV-1 protease, first into intermediate products p41 and p15. Then p41 is digested into matrix protein p17 and capsid protein p24. Protein p15 is further digested into nucleocapsid protein p7 and to p6 and p1, both of unknown function.
