Epstein-Barr Virus Nuclear Antigen antibody | E1-2.5
Epstein-Barr Virus, also known as HHV-4 or Human herpesvirus 4, is a member of the herpesvirus family and one of the most common infectious viruses known, being responsible for a wide range of illnesses from infectious mononucleosis to nasal-pharyngeal cancer. EBNA-1 is the only viral protein expressed during group 1 latency and mediates the replication and partitioning of the episome during host cell division, binding to a replication origin (oriP) within the viral genome. The Gly-Ala repeat recognized by Mouse anti Epstein-Barr Virus Nuclear Antigen antibody, clone E1-2.5, inhibits the host’s CD8-restricted cytotoxic T-cell response to infected cells, by impairing antigen processing and MHC class I-restricted antigen presentation.
