Mouse anti Feline Immunodeficiency Virus p24 gag antibody, clone PAK3-2C1 recognizes an epitope on the C-terminal alpha-helix 9 within the amino-acid sequence AEVKLYLKQSLSIAN of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) p24 gag.

The lentivirus FIV, responsible for a progressive and debilitating immune deficiency syndrome in domestic cats, similar to that caused by the human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), is a complex retrovirus with a tightly-packed genome, containing the structural genes gag, env and pro-pol and the accessory genes vif, rev and ORF-A/2.

The specific binding epitope recognized by Mouse anti Feline Immunodeficiency Virus p24 gag antibody, clone PAK3-2C1 appears to be enclosed in a tight peptide coil during gag production and maturation. The addition of 0.3% Triton-X detergent is recommended to reveal this epitope for antibody binding.

Mouse anti Feline Immunodeficiency Virus p24 gag antibody, clone PAK3-2C1 detects a dominant band of approximately 24kDa, and also detects p24 gag precursor bands at 36, 39, 49 and 52kDa under reducing conditions in Western blotting.

Mouse anti Feline Immunodeficiency Virus p24 gag antibody, clone PAK3-2C1 does not recognize Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV), Feline Herpes Virus (FHV) type 1, Feline Coronavirus or Feline Calicivirus.

Applications of Feline Immunodeficiency Virus p24 gag antibody

This product has been reported to work in the following applications. This information is derived from testing within our laboratories, peer-reviewed publications or personal communications from the originators. Please refer to references indicated for further information. For general protocol recommendations, please visit the antibody protocols page.
Application Name Verified Min Dilution Max Dilution
Flow Cytometry 1
Immunohistology - Frozen 2
Immunohistology - Paraffin
Western Blotting
  1. 1Membrane permeabilisation is required for this application. Bio-Rad recommends the use of Leucoperm™ (Product Code BUF09) for this purpose.
  2. 2The epitope recognised by this antibody is reported to be sensitive to formaldehyde fixation and tissue processing. Bio-Rad recommends the use of acetone fixation for frozen sections.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
Flow Cytometry
Use 10ul of the suggested working dilution to label 1x106 cells in 100ul.
