Feline Immunodeficiency Virus gp95 antibody | SU1-30
The primary receptor for FIV infection of cats has been identified as the T-cell activation antigen CD134 which, along with CXC chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4), facilitates the infection of CD4+ primary target cells, resulting in a depletion in the CD4+ population. Studies have shown that the V3 loop of SU,gp95 is a major immunogenic domain, suggested to contain the main determinants for the binding of FIV SU,gp95 to CXCR4 (Sundstrom, M. et al. 2008).
Mouse anti Feline Immunodeficiency Virus gp95 antibody, clone SU1-30 has been shown to inhibit the sCD134-activated entry of both clade B and clade C FIV strains (de Parseval, A. et al. 2006).
Mouse anti Feline Immunodeficiency Virus gp95 antibody, clone SU1-30 does not recognise Feline Leukaemia Virus, Feline Herpes Virus type 1, Feline Coronavirus or Feline Calicivirus.
