For research and diagnosis on human and animal tissues Wageningen Bioveterinary Research (WBVR) supplies mouse monoclonal antibodies that are specific for prion protein PrP.
Prion disease research
The antibodies have been broadly applied in the field of prion diseases and have contributed to many scientific papers on Creutzfeldt‑Jakob disease (CJD), mad cow disease (BSE), scrapie and chronic wasting disease (CWD). They are also being used in prion disease research with animal models like conventional mice, transgenic mice, hamsters and bank voles.

Information sheets per antibody
There are six different antibodies; two of which have the same specificity but are from a different IgG class. In the table below you can download a separate information sheet for each antibody.
|mAb||epitope specificity (bovine PrP numbering) *|
*) Six octa‑repeat numbering according to Goldmann et al., J Gen Virol. 1991. Vol72:201-204. In other animal species usually only five octa-repeats occur, while single amino acid insertions and deletions might occur too.
