MA1-20815 detects Yersinia pestis in bacteria samples.
MA1-20815 has been successfully used in ELISA, immunofluorescence and immunohistochemistry procedures.
The MA1-20815 immunogen is a Yersinia pestis cell preparation.
Y.pestis has a number of virulence factors that enable it to survive in humans by facilitating use of host nutrients, causing damage to host cells, and subverting phagocytosis and other host defense mechanisms. Capsular F1 antigen is a main immunochemical component of Y.pestis surface. F1 subunit of the antigen is originally synthesized from 170 amino acids and has a molecular mass 17.6 K, then, after the elimination of the signal peptide during the secretion onto the surface, a protein with molecular mass 15.6 K and isoelectric point 4.1 is formed.
