Immunofluorescence, Western Blotting
This product recognizes the 65kD late major matrix protein of the cytomegalovirus (CMV), a member of the herpesvirus family. CMV is a DNA virus that is widespread in the general population and characterized by its ability to give rise to persistent latent infections. The virus is the largest of the herpesviruses and has the largest genome of any known virus.
CMV is transmitted by the parenteral route and persists latently in circulating leukocytes and endothelial cells lining the walls of blood vessels. CMV lyses cells by disrupting the cytoskeleton and causing massive cell enlargement.
