BIO-PROBE® Herpes simplex virus probe

ENZ-40838 2 µg 293.00 USD
Do you need bulk/larger quantities?
The Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) BIO-PROBE® labeled probe is prepared by nick translation of two clones of HSV DNA, one 8 kb fragment from HSV 1 DNA and one 16 kb fragment from HSV 2 DNA. The probe is specific for herpes simplex viruses. It does not cross hybridize to cytomegalovirus nor Epstein-Barr virus, but is capable of detecting clinical isolates of HSV. Fragment size range: 100-1000 base pairs (as estimated by agarose gel electrophoresis).

Product Specification

Formulation:Liquid. In 10mM TRIS HCl, pH 7.5, containing 1mM EDTA.
Applications:Dot Blot, ISH (in situ hybridization), Northern Blot, Southern Blot
Application Notes:The Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) BIO-PROBE® labeled probe can be used in a variety of hybridization techniques, including Southern blots, Northern blots or dot blots, at concentrations of 50 to 100ng/ml. The probe can also be used for in situ hybridization applications at concentrations of 0.5 to 1.0μg/ml. Biotinylated probes have been shown to hybridize to homologous DNA at the same rate and to the same extent as non-biotinylated probes.The hybridized biotinylated DNA probe can be detected by its interaction with biotin-binding proteins, such as avidin, streptavidin or antibodies coupled to fluorescent dyes or color producing enzymes.Complete kits and protocols are available for in situ hybridization and detection procedures (Enzo’s SAVIEW® PLUS and POLYVIEW® PLUS in situ detection systems).
Shipping:Shipped on Dry Ice
Long Term Storage:-20°C
Use/Stability:Stable for one year after receipt when stored as recommended.
Technical Info/Product Notes:BIO-PROBE® is a trademark of Enzo Life Sciences, Inc. Several of Enzo’s products and product applications are covered by US and foreign patents and patents pending.
