Influenza A Virus (8C8) Antibody
Influenza viruses are common and highly infectious human pathogens. They are constantly mutating to modify their antigenicity and avoid elimination by immunity to previous generations of virus. The matrix protein of influenza virus is a multimer of 25-30 kDa subunits that mediates the encapsidation of the RNA-nucleoprotein cores into the membrane envelope. This antibody is specific for influenza A virus matrix protein in Western blotting.
