N/A; Due to limited knowledge and inability for testing each and every species, the reactivity of the antibody may extend to other species which are not listed hereby.
Specificity and cross-reactivity
Binds to an epitope on pVIII (phage coat protein) covering the N-terminal region of g8p AEGDDPAKAAFDSLQASAT.; Since it is not possible to test each and every species our knowledge on the corss reactivity of the antibodies is limited. This particular antibody might cross react with speacies outside of the listed ones.
Storage and shipping
Store the antibody at +4 degrees Celsius for short term storage.. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and add glycerol (40-50%). Store the antibody should be stored at -20 degrees Celsius. or colder. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months the antibody should be stored at -20 degrees Celsius.. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
M13 bacteriophage is a virus that infects the bacterium Escherichia coli. It is composed of a circular single-stranded DNA molecule encased in a thin flexible tube made up of about 2700 copies of a single protein called P8, the major coat protein. The ends of the tube are capped with minor coat proteins. Infection starts when the minor coat protein P3 attaches to the receptor at the tip of the F pilus of the bacterium. Infection with M13 is not lethal; however, the infection causes turbid plaques in E. coli because infected bacteria grow more slowly than the surrounding uninfected bacteria. It engages in a viral lifestyle known as a chronic infection which is neither lytic or temperate. However a decrease in the rate of cell growth is seen in the infected cells. M13 plasmids are used for many recombinant DNA processes, and the virus has also been studied for its uses in nanostructures and nanotechnology.
