The antibody recognizes an epitope containing the five carboxy-terminal amino acids of VSV Glycoprotein. In infected cells, the antibody localizes the immature forms of VSV-G in the rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER) and in the cisternae of Golgi complex, as well as mature VSV-G at the cell surface and in the budding virus. The antibody does not stain the secreted form of VSV-G which lacks the membrane and the cytoplasmic domain. This antibody has been used for studies on the role of the cytoplasmic domain on newly-synthesized VSV-G during transfer to the plasma membrane and cell surface, using micro-injected antibody, immunoblotting, immunoprecipitation, immunocytochemistry and immunoelectron microscopy. The antibody has been used for the detection, immunoprecipitation and immunocytochemical staining of exogenously introduced constructs tagged with the carboxyl-terminus of VSV-G. This tag does not interfere with the function of the studied protein and can be specifically recognized by the P5D4 antibody without cross-reaction with any endogenous protein.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide


A dilution of 1:1000 of Monoclonal Anti-VSV Glycoprotein-Cy3® antibody produced in mouse was used to detect VSV glycoprotein in pig sperms by immunofluorescence.

Biochem/physiol Actions

The vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) glycoprotein facilitates the entry of HIV into the CD4 T cells through endocytotic pathway. The coupling of Cy3 to Anti-VSV Glycoprotein antibody allows for the visualization of protein by fluorescent microscopy.
