PA5-19852 targets KSHV ORF8 in WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The PA5-19852 immunogen is synthetic peptide, corresponding to amino acids sequence of KSHV ORF8.
Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) belongs to the gamma-(2)-herpesvirus subfamily and has been closely linked to the Kaposi and quote;s sarcoma, primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) and multicentric Castleman and quote;s disease. The genome of KSHV is 165-170 kb and contains at least 88 open reading frames. KSHV ORF8 is a virion envelope-associated protein. Akula et al (2003) report it acts as a Glycoprotein B mediated signaling during virus entry. This Glycoprotein possesses the Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) motif and utilizes alpha3beta1 integrin as one of the receptors for its entry into the target cells.
