General Information

Biological Significance Human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a virus that causes respiratory tract infections. It is the major cause of lower respiratory tract infection and hospital visits during infancy and childhood. There is a prophylactic medication (not a vaccine) for premature (<35 Wks) infants and infants with congenital heart disease (CHD) or bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). Treatment is limited to supportive care, including oxygen.

Application product used in Flow Cytometry
Usage 1:100 to 1:3200 dilution series using fresh human PBMCs.
Comments High concentrations of antibody gives very robust signal; cheap product. Cells with low expression of antigen or early during infection can be missed due to high background. Infection of RSV was verified by two step stainings using alternative antibodies. With this FITC-conjugated antibody, we detect less positive cells than expected. Uninfected control cells are always necessary due to the high background. The antibody works better on homogeneous cell populations like immortalized cell lines.
