Metapneumovirus antibody | HMPV57
|Mouse anti Metapneumovirus antibody, clone HMPV57 recognizes human metapneumovirus (hMPV), a member of the Paramyxoviridae RNA virus family. Metapneumovirus was discovered in 2001 and is distributed worldwide. Infection in the upper respiratory tract is associated with mild illness, while lower respiratory tract infection can cause fever, cough, pneumonia, bronchiolitis and wheezing. Severe lower respiratory tract infection is most common in the very young, the very old and the immunosuppressed. Metapneumovirus is a common cause of respiratory infection.
Phylogenetic analysis has shown two major genotypes, A and B, each containing two sub-divisions, suggesting that four distinct lineages circulate in the population with different lineages predominating in different years.
Mouse anti Metapneumovirus antibody, clone HMPV57 recognizes all sub-types (A1, A2, B1 and B2) of hMPV and may be used in conjunction with clones HMPV123, HMPV33 and HMPV24 to detect all strains of hMPV.
Mouse anti Metapneumovirus antibody, clone HMPV57 does not cross-react with cell cultures infected with hRSV, influenzaviruses A and B, adenovirus, parainfluenza viruses 1, 2, 3 and 4b, mumps virus, measles virus, varicella-zoster virus, herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2, human cytomegalovirus, human herpesvirus type 6, ECHOvirus 19, Coxsachievirus B4, poliovirus types 1-3, HHV6 or uninfected HeLa, MA104, 3MK, LLC-MK, HEp2, MRC-5 and HSB-2 cells. It also does not react with sputum bacteria.
