Rubella Glycoprotein E2
ELISA, Haemagglutination, Immunoblotting
This product recognizes the membrane glycoprotein E2 of the Rubella virus. Rubella virus is a human pathogen that causes Rubella (also known as German measles). Rubella is a mild disease characterised by a low-grade fever and possibly a rash. Infection of a woman during the first trimester of pregnancy is far more serious and can lead to a range of birth defects commonly known as congenital rubella syndrome (CRS).
The E2 glycoprotein is disulfide-linked to the E1 glycoprotein to form heterodimer spikes on the surface of the virus.
