SUMMARY, EXPLANATION AND LIMITATIONS:
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is an opportunistic pathogen infecting lung, kidney, gut and other organs in situations where an individual is immunologically immature, such as the fetus and neonate. Infection also occurs in immunosuppressed patients eg transplant patients, patients undergoing chemotherapy and those with HIV infection.
Immunogen: Lysate of CMV-infected cells.
Staining pattern: Nuclear.
Positive control: Tissue sample from CMV infected tissue.
This antibody is designed for the specific localization of cytomegalovirus using IHC techniques in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections.
