Epstein–Barr nuclear antigen 1 (EBNA1) was the first Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) protein which was detected and is probably one of the most widely studied, it is expressed in both lytic and latent modes of EBV infections. EBNA-1displays a number of properties which include formation of dimers, sequence specific binding to DNA, multifunctional phosphorylation, the stimulation of cellular gene expression and nuclear localisation. The expression of EBV-encoded proteins has been found to be most stringently restricted in primary Burkitt’s lymphoma where only EBNA1 and the non-translated Epstein-Barr virus-encoded small nuclear RNAs are transcribed. EBNA1 consists of a glycine–alanine repeat sequence and this separates the protein into the amino- and carboxy-terminal domains, other roles for this sequence include preventing proteasomal breakdown, stabilising the protein, antigen processing and MHC class I-restricted antigen presentation. Many studies have indicated a vital role of EBNA1 in maintaining tumor function.
Human EBV EBNA-1 IgM antibody ELISA kit can be used for analysing in-vitro quantitative levels of human IgM antibodies against Epstein–Barr virus EBNA-1 (EBV EBNA-1) in plasma and serum samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.09 U/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of human Epstein–Barr virus EBNA-1 (EBV EBNA-1) IgM using this human EBV EBNA-1 IgM antibody ELISA kit was 1.09 U/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 1.0 – 150.0 U/ml.
