For western blots, incubate membrane with diluted primary antibody in 5% w/v BSA, 1X TBS, 0.1% Tween® 20 at 4°C with gentle shaking, overnight.
NOTE: Please refer to primary antibody product webpage for recommended antibody dilution.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.
Load 20 µl onto SDS-PAGE gel (10 cm x 10 cm).
NOTE: Loading of prestained molecular weight markers (#59329, 10 µl/lane) to verify electrotransfer and biotinylated protein ladder (#7727, 10 µl/lane) to determine molecular weights are recommended.
NOTE: Volumes are for 10 cm x 10 cm (100 cm2) of membrane; for different sized membranes, adjust volumes accordingly.
* Avoid repeated exposure to skin.

Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Val534 of MERS-CoV spike protein.
Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is a contagious viral respiratory infection, whose causative agent was identified as the MERS-related coronavirus (MERS-CoV) (1,2). MERS-CoV is a single-stranded mRNA betacoronavirus; similar to other infectious coronaviruses (e.g., SARS-CoV-2), the MERS-CoV virion is comprised of four key structural proteins: spike (S), envelope (E), membrane (M), and nucleocapsid (N) (3). Coronavirus spike proteins are class I fusion proteins that harbor an ectodomain, a transmembrane domain, and an intracellular tail. The highly glycosylated ectodomain projects from the viral envelope surface and facilitates attachment and fusion with the host cell plasma membrane. The ectodomain can be further subdivided into host receptor-binding domain (RBD) (S1) and membrane-fusion (S2) subunits, which are produced upon proteolysis by host proteases (4). MERS-CoV spike proteins utilize the cell surface protein DPP4/CD26 as the receptor for cellular entry (5,6); notably, this protein displays no structural similarities to ACE2, the primary receptor for SARS-CoV-1 and SARS-CoV-2. Spike protein subunits represent a key antigenic feature of coronavirus virions, and therefore represent an important target of vaccines, novel therapeutic antibodies, and small-molecule inhibitors (7,8).
