Influenza B Nucleoprotein antibody | B017 (B35G)
The influenza viruses, classified as type A, B and C, are members of the Orthomyxoviridae family which differ in their epidemiology and host ranges and lack serological cross-reactivity of their internal components, especially their matrix proteins and nucleoprotein. Influenza B virus is a slow-mutating single stranded RNA virus subject to antigenic drift which, although enough to prevent lasting immunity, prevents influenza B from causing pandemics.
Mouse anti Influenza B Nucleoprotein antibody, clone B017 can be used in influenza B IFA typing in conjunction with MCA2717 (clone B114).
