General description

ZooMAb antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.

Each ZooMAb antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Target description

Nucleoprotein (UniProt: P59595/P0DTC9; also known as Nucleocapsid protein, NC, Protein N) is encoded by the N gene (Gene ID: 1489678) in Human SARS coronavirus. The SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 causing virus) is a positive-strand RNA virus that causes severe respiratory syndrome in human. The mature SARS-CoV-2 contains 4 structural proteins: Envelope (E), Membrane (M), Nucleocapsid (N), and the Spike protein (S). Nucleoprotein of SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 is a homooligomeric protein that packages the positive strand viral genome RNA into helical ribonucleocapsid and plays a role in virion assembly through its interactions with the viral genome and membrane protein M. It plays an important role in enhancing the efficiency of subgenomic viral RNA transcription as well as viral replication. The RNA binding region of SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 is localized to amino acids 42-187 and 41-186, respectively. Lack of cysteine is one of the common features in nucleoprotein from different coronaviruses. The complete N protein of SARS-CoV and COV-2 is a highly basic with positive net charges and high pI (10.11). Its N-terminal region is more basic with positive charge, while the C-terminal region is acidic with negative charge. The middle region of nucleoprotein displays relatively higher hydrophobicity and the two termini display greater hydrophilicity. Nucleoprotein can undergo phosphorylation at multiple serines by GSK-3, CKII, Akt, CDKs, and Polo-like kinases. Some of these phosphorylation events are essential for RNA binding, oligomerization and localization to nucleoli. Phosphorylation is also required for recruitment of host RNA helicase DDX1 (DEAD-Box Helicase 1) that facilitates template readthrough and enables longer subgenomic mRNA synthesis. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.

Physical form

Purified mouse monoclonal antibody IgG2a in buffer containing PBS, 5% Trehalose without preservatives


300 μg/mL after reconstitution at 25 μL per vial. Please refer to guidance on suggested starting dilutions and/or titers per application and sample type.

Storage and Stability

Recommend storage of lyophilized product at 2-8°C; Before reconstitution, micro-centrifuge vials briefly to spin down material to bottom of the vial; Reconstitute each vial by adding 25 μL of filtered lab grade water or PBS; Reconstituted antibodies can be stored at 2-8°C, or -20°C for long term storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaws.
