Anti-Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 (HSV-1) Capsid Protein VP5 [6F10-D2-G2] Antibody

This mouse IgG1 monoclonal antibody was generated against herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) capsids and recognizes HSV-1 capsid protein VP5.


  • Reacts with HSV-1 capsid protein VP5
  • Recognizes amino acids 862-880 of VP5
  • Suitable for Western Blot and Immunoprecipitation applications

Herpes simplex virus is widespread in the human population with most people exposed during childhood. HSV-1 is best-known as the etiological agent of cold sores and genital lesions, but it also causes a stromal ketatitis, disseminated disease in the newborn and encephalitis in adults People who become infected with HSV will have the virus for the rest of their lives. Even if it does not manifest symptoms, the virus will continue to live in an infected persons nerve cells. .
