Influenza A Virus (5D8) 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 nucleoprotein of influenza A virus is a basic, phosphorylated multimeric protein consisting of 498 aa subunits that encapsidate the viral RNA genome to form a ribonucleoprotein particle. This antibody is specific for influenza A virus nucleoprotein and does not cross-react with influenza B virus.
