anti-AAV2 (intact particle) mouse monoclonal, A20, Biotin Conjugate

Specifically detects intact virus particles, both empty and full capsids. With AAV2 and AAV3 A20 recognizes a conformational epitope of assembled capsids, not present in denatured and native unassembled capsid proteins. Not for WB.

For characterization of different stages of infection and very useful for the analysis of the AAV assembly process. A20 specifically reacts with intact adeno-associated virus particles, empty and full capsids. Recognizes a conformational epitope of assembled capsids, not present in denatured capsid proteins and native but unassembled capsid proteins. The antibody cannot be used for immunoblotting.
Epitope mapping experiments (Wobus et al., 2000) identified four immunoreactive (discontinous) regions. The major reaction was attributed to sequence aa 369 to aa378 of AAV2 capsids. The antibody is also useful for neutralizing experiments (Moskalenko et al., 2000).
