SARS-CoV-2 Biotin-Nucleocapsid protein – 0.5 mg
PRODUCT CODE: X-PRO-0011-0.5MG
ALIQUOTING: 1 X 0.5 mg vial
STORAGE: < -18 °C
The nucleocapsid protein (N-protein) is the most abundant protein in SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. The association of nucleocapsid protein with single-stranded viral RNA leads to the formation of the helical nucleocapsid structure. The nucleocapsid protein is highly immunogenic and is often used as a marker in diagnostic assays. About a week after SARS onset, nucleocapsid specific antibodies may be detected and sustain for long time.
PRECAUTIONS AND DISCLAIMER
This product is for LABORATORY RESEARCH USE ONLY, not for diagnostic, therapeutic, drug, household, or other uses. Please consult the Material Safety Data Sheet for information regarding hazards and safe handling practices.
For shipping at ambient temperature the protein is liquid-stabilized with a HEPES, NaCl, small molecule buffer base at neutral pH.
PREPARATION AND HANDLING
Stock solutions can be diluted in appropriate biotin free buffers.
STORAGE / STABILITY
For long term storage the liquid-stabilized protein should be stored below – 18 °C. Repeated freeze-thaw cycles (> 5) should be avoided. For long term usage, stock solutions can be frozen in working aliquots.
The E. coli expressed recombinant SARS-CoV-2 Nucleocapsid Protein has a molecular mass of 47 kDa and a predicted isoelectric point of 10. Nucleocapsid Protein is conjugated with biotin under optimal conditions.
For protein conjugation a final concentration of 0.2 to 1 mg/ml is recommended. For coating on streptavidin precoated microplates a final concentration of 0.1 to 1 μg/ml is recommended. For optimal performance the reagent should be titrated for each application.
