useful for Western blotting or ELISA for HIV-1 reverse transcriptase detection and titration.

Anti HIV-1 Reverse Transcriptase Polyclonal Antibody


HIV-1 reverse transcriptase is an RNA-dependent DNA polymerase of HIV-1(AIDS virus), subtype B origin (1). It also has RNaseH activity and is an enzyme indispensable to the reproduction of AIDS virus. The product is prepared by immunizing rabbit with HIV-1 reverse transcriptase which was uniquely over-overexpressed as recombinant protein in E. coli by a patent method and highly purified (2). Using this antiserum in Western blotting, the bands of 66 kD and 51 kD corresponding respectively to the two subunits of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase were observed in the extract of the AIDS virus infected cells (Fig 1).
