Anti-dsRNA monoclonal antibody K2 can be used for the detection of dsRNA. It is recommended for (Sandwich-) ELISA and provides an isotoype alternative to Anti-dsRNA monoclonal antibodies J2 and K1.

(Sandwich-)ELISA (1:2 dilution in PBS) , IHC, Dot Blot

Anti-dsRNA monoclonal antibody K2 recognises double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) provided that the length of the helix is greater than or equal to 40 bp dsRNA. Recognition is independent of the sequence and nucleotide composition of the antigen. All naturally occurring dsRNAs investigated up to now (40-50 species) as well as poly(I)-poly(C) and poly(A)-poly(U) have been recognised by Anti-dsRNA monoclonal antibody K2.
As described by Schönborn et al. (1991), Anti-dsRNA monoclonal antibody K2 binds with high avidity to all dsRNAs investigated.
