SARS-ACE contains the N-terminus Envelope protein immunodominant regions, amino acids: 1-76. SARS-ACE is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Background: SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) Coronavirus is an enveloped virus containing three outer structural proteins, namely the membrane (M), envelope (E), and spike (S) proteins. Spike (S)-glycoprotein of the virus interacts with a cellular receptor and mediates membrane fusion to allow viral entry into susceptible target cells. Accordingly, S-protein plays an important role in virus infection cycle and is the primary target of neutralizing antibodies.

Recombinant SARS-ACE Antigen may be used in ELISA and Western blots, excellent for detection of SARS with minimal specificity problems.

Specificity: Immunoreactive with sera of SARS infected individuals.
