Description Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) belongs to the gamma-(2)-herpesvirus subfamily and has been closely linked to the Kaposi’s sarcoma, primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) and multicentric Castleman’s disease. The genome of KSHV is 165-170 kb and contains at least 88 open reading frames. KSHV ORF8 is a virion envelope-associated protein. Akula et al (2003) report it acts as a Glycoprotein B mediated signaling during virus entry. This Glycoprotein possesses the Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) motif and utilizes alpha3beta1 integrin as one of the receptors for its entry into the target cells.
Immunogen Synthetic peptide, corresponding to amino acids sequence of KSHV ORF8.
Formulation Rabbit anti-serum.
Additional Information

Dilution WB~~1/500 - 1/2000
StorageMaintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Protein Information
Name gB {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_04032}
Synonyms ORF8
Function Envelope glycoprotein that forms spikes at the surface of the virion envelope. Participates in viral entry through an RGD motif that binds ITGAV-ITGB3. Membrane fusion is mediated by the fusion machinery composed at least of gB and the heterodimer gH/gL. May be involved in the fusion between the virion envelope and the outer nuclear membrane during virion egress.
Cellular Location Virion membrane {ECO:0000255|HAMAP- Rule:MF_04032}; Single-pass type I membrane protein {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_04032}. Host cell membrane {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_04032}; Single-pass type I membrane protein {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_04032}. Host endosome membrane {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_04032}; Single-pass type I membrane protein {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_04032}. Host Golgi apparatus membrane {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_04032}; Single-pass type I membrane protein {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_04032}. Note=During virion morphogenesis, this protein probably accumulates in the endosomes and trans-Golgi where secondary envelopment occurs. It is probably transported to the cell surface from where it is endocytosed and directed to the trans-Golgi network (TGN) {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_04032}
