IHC of Herpes Simplex Virus I on an FFPE Infected Tissue
|For Analyte Specific Reagent.
|Summary and Explanation
Herpes simplex virus I (HSV-I) is a strain of the Herpes virus family, Herpesviridae, which cause infections in humans. The double stranded DNA genome is contained within an icosahedral capsid embedded in a proteinaceous layer (tegument) and surrounded by a lipid envelope, derived from the nuclear membrane of the last host, which is decorated with virus-specific glycoproteins spikes. HSV I causes a contagious disease, also known as cold sore, night fever, or fever blister. After an initial, or primary, infection, HSV establishes latency, during which the virus is present in the cell bodies of nerves which innervate the area of original outbreak. Herpes symptoms may periodically recur in the form of outbreaks of herpetic sores near the site of original infection. HSV I usually infects the non-genital mucosal surfaces, and Type II typically involves the genitalia. Either type may affect the skin or internal organs (typically brain, lung, liver, adrenal gland, or GI tract) of immunocompromised individuals.
Herpes Simplex Virus I is a mouse monoclonal antibody derived from cell culture supernatant that is concentrated, dialyzed, filter sterilized and diluted in buffer pH 7.5, containing BSA and sodium azide as a preservative.
