|Other Accession||P03518, 1174956|
|Calculated MW||132053 Da|
|Application Notes||RVF virus antibody can detect 10ng RVF virus peptide in ELISA at 1 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||RVFV_sM_gp1; This RVF virus antibody was derived from a peptide sequence near the carboxy terminus of the polyprotein precursor translated from the M segment. It will therefore detect both the precursor and the Glycoprotein G2.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Rift Valley Fever Virus 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||Rift Valley Fever Virus Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Glycoprotein G1 and glycoprotein G2 interact with each other and are present at the surface of the virion. They are able to attach the virion to a cell receptor and to promote fusion of membranes after endocytosis of the virion (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Glycoprotein G1: Virion membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein Host Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Host endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Note=Interaction between G1 and G2 is essential for proper targeting of G1 to the Golgi complex, where virion budding occurs.|

Rift Valley Fever Virus Antibody: Rift Valley Fever (RFV) virus is an arthropod-borne virus endemic to Africa that infects humans and animals that is transmitted predominantly by mosquitoes. During human infections, symptoms can range from benign fever to severe encephalitis and fatal hepatitis with hemorrhagic fever. The Bunyaviridae family of viruses to which the RVF virus belongs are spherical enveloped viruses with a tripartite RNA genome of negative or ambisense polarity. The three segments are referred to as the L, M, and S segments. The L and M segments are negative polarity and code fore the L-dependent RNA polymerase and glycoprotein precursor respectively. The S segment is of ambisense polarity and encodes the nucleoprotein and non-structural proteins.
