This antibody reacts with Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) 1. Herpes Simplex Virus antibody reacts with major viral envelope glycoproteins and with core proteins. Infected biopsy tissues include esophagus, lung, liver, cervix and perianal region, as well as cytology specimens. HSV can also infect both the peripheral and central nervous system. Viral antigens may be detected in the cytoplasm and nucleus. Typically, HSV Type 1 infects tissues such as lung and esophagus. This antibody does not cross-react with cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, or varicella zoster virus.
