|Other Accession||P59637, 30173401|
|Calculated MW||8361 Da|
|Application Notes||SARS envelope antibody can be used for the detection of SARS envelope protein in ELISA. It will detect 10 ng of free peptide at 1 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||SARS Envelope Antibody: sM, 4, Envelope small membrane protein, E protein, Envelope small membrane protein|
|Reconstitution & Storage||SARS Envelope antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||SARS Envelope Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of the viral envelope that plays a central role in virus morphogenesis and assembly. It is sufficient to form virus-like particles. Seems to be important for creating the membrane curvature needed to acquire the rounded, stable and infectious particle phenotype. Acts as a viroporin, inducing the formation of hydrophilic pores in cellular membranes. Also induces apoptosis (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Virion membrane; Single-pass type III membrane protein. Host Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type III membrane protein. Note=Largely membrane-embedded. The N-terminus could be located within the membrane near the cytoplasmic side since no part of the protein is aparently exposed on the virion outside. The large hydrophobic domain could form a hairpin, looping back through the membrane. There also may be a second hydrophobic domain integrated into membranes (By similarity)|

SARS Envelope Antibody: A novel coronavirus has recently been identified as the causative agent of SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome). Coronaviruses are a major cause of upper respiratory diseases in humans. The genomes of these viruses are positive-stranded RNA approximately 27-31kb in length. SARS infection can be mediated by the binding of the viral spike protein, a glycosylated 139 kDa protein and the major surface antigen of the virus, to the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) on target cells. This binding can be blocked by a soluble form of ACE2.
