Rubella virus contains one capsid protein (associated with the RNA in the nucleocapsid), and three envelope glycoproteins, E1, E2a, and E2b that are associated with the envelope and were located externally on the virus particle.
Rubella Envelope (click to see its protein sequence) Viral Like Particles was packaged in HEK293T cells using our proprietary technology. It is the replication-incompetent particles in which the Rubella Envelope (with 6His-tag at its C-terminal) was pseudo-typed as the lentiviral particles’ surface envelope protein. [Note: This VLP has the Rubella Envelope antigen expressed on the particle’s surface. If you want to over-express the Rubella Envelope antigen in your desired cell types, please use lentivirus product, CAT#: LVP1405-PBS.]
This VLP packaged a non-sense sequence (Null) as the particle’s virion genomic material, to maintain the intact of the particles.
Rubella Envelope was assembled as surface antigens which can be used as the ready to use Rubella Envelope antigen, or for raising the specific antibodies, for the validation of anti-Rubella Envelope antibodies, in vaccine development and other validation assays. This VLP can also be detected by the anti-C-terminal 6His-tag antibody.
The VLP’s titer was measured via ELISA P24 assay. Every single particle assembled many envelope molecules at its surface. See more details in Product Manual.
