HIV Type 1 HIV-1 Strain IIIB Lysate
Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV-1) (Strain: IIIB) is an enveloped Retrovirus approximately 120 nm in diameter, which contains two copies of a single-stranded, positive-sense RNA.
The virus is purified using sucrose density gradient ultracentrifugation, disrupted in the presence of 0.5% Triton X-100 non-ionic detergent/0.6 M KCl, and heat inactivated.
Protein concentrations generally range from 0.5 to 3.0 mg/mL.
Viral inactivation is verified for every lot of lysate via the Molecular Probes EnzChek® RT Assay or by the absence of viral growth in tissue culture-based infectivity assays.
