Epstein-Barr Virus LMP2A antibody | 15F9
EBV latently infects B lymphocytes. Infected B cells express EBV nuclear antigens and latent proteins LMP1, LMP2A and LMP2B. LMP2A forms aggregates in the plasma membranes of B lymphocytes, where it functions as a negative regulator of the Src and Syk protein tyrosine kinases.
Studies show that LMP2A blocks B-cell receptor (BCR) signal transduction in EBV immortalized B cells in vitro and may play an important role in maintaining a latent EBV infection within the peripheral blood B cells of infected individuals.
Rat anti Epstein-Barr Virus LMP2A antibody, clone 15F9 (MCA2467) specifically recognizes LMP2A and does not cross react with LMP2B.
