Antigen in ELISA and Western blots, excellent antigen for early detection of HIV seroconvertors with minimal specificity problems.
The protein contains the full-length HTLV-1 major core protein p24. The protein is purified by proprietary chromatographic technique.
Background: Human T-cell leukemia virus (HTLV)-1 and -2 are deltaretroviruses that infect a wide range of cells. HTLV-1 has been found primarily in CD4+ and CD8+ T-lymphocytes in vivo, whereas CD8+ T-lymphocytes are thought to be the in vivo reservoir of HTLV-2.
Specificity: Immuno reactive with all sera of HIV-I infected individuals.
