Hybridoma cell line producing AP7 antibodies raised against Herpes Simplex Virus Type-1 and Type-2 envelope protein Glycoprotein D, which are mouse monoclonal antibodies of the IgG2a isotype. Works well for immunofluorescence (IF) on fixed specimens and for immunoprecipitiation (IP) on triton solubilised samples. Does not work in western blots. The antibody epitope is well characterised by binding competition assays and by sequencing of antibody escape mutants.
