Zika Virus (Strain: PRVABC59) Lysate
Zika Virus is an enveloped, icosahedral Flavivirus that contains a non-segmented, single-stranded positive-sense RNA. Zika Virus (Strain: PRVABC59) is propagated in the Vero or LLC-mk2 cell line. This Zika virus was collected from a human serum specimen in December of 2015 from Puerto Rico; NCBI Accession No. KU501215. This virus is purified using sucrose density gradient ultracentrifugation, disrupted in the presence of 0.5% Triton X-100 non-ionic detergent/0.6 M KCl, and heat inactivated. Viral lysate is usually sold in a vial containing 1.0 mg of protein, and is shipped on dry ice. Protein concentrations generally range from 0.5 to 3.0 mg/mL. Custom orders are available, including specific buffer formulations and package sizes.
This product is intended for research, product development, quality assurance testing, or further manufacturing use. Viral lysates can be utilized as an antigen, as a source for the purification of viral proteins, or for the detection of viral antibodies. Applications include: Immunodetection of antibodies to Zika Virus using solid-phase enzyme immunoassays (EIA); Western blot; Dot blot; Other protein-based assay.
