murine MAb against CbiA of Borrelia miyamotoi, Clone BM-C1-R4/1.1

Tick-borne relapsing fever (TBRF) spirochetes include Borrelia (B.) hermsii, B. parkeri, B. duttonii, and B. miyamotoi. As an emerging human pathogen B. miyamotoi is transmitted, in contrast to other TBRF spirochetes, by hard-bodied ticks. B. miyamotoi occurs sympatrically with B. burgdorferi s.l. in Asia, North America, and Europe. Human cases were first reported in patients with nonspecific febrile illness and symptoms similar to relapsing fever, including high-grade fever, headache, fatigue, chills, myalgia, arthralgia, and nausea led to the implementation of a new entity termed hard tick-borne relapsing fever (HTBRF). B. miyamotoi efficiently evade complement via CbiA, exhibiting complement inactivating properties.

The monoclonal antibody ADG0175L (BM-C1-R4/1.1) is a murine monoclonal antibody, subclass IgG1 recognizing CbiA of Borrelia miyamotoi strain HT31. Mice were immunized with rec. CbiA. The antibody has been purified from cell culture supernatant using Protein G affinity chromatography.

Vial containing 1 mg purified antibody in PBS pH 7.4. The concentration is given on the vial label. Spin the vial briefly before opening.

Storage and Stability
Store the antibody at 2°-8°C. For long-term storage the antibody should be aliquoted and stored at –20°C or colder. It is recommended to avoid freeze-thaw cycles.

The antibody can be used as capture antibody in ELISAs. An antibody concentration of 1-10 µg/ml is recommended.
The antibody is suitable for Western blot analysis, detecting native and recombinant CbiA following SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions. A primary antibody concentration of 1-10 µg/mL is recommended.
The antibody can be used for immune-cytochemistry on paraformaldehyde fixed spirochetes.
