Information Based on immunoelectrophoresis and/or ELISA, the antibody reacts with the F(ab")2/Fab portion of mouse IgG.It also reacts with the light chains of other mouse immunoglobulins.No antibody was detected against the Fc portion of mouse IgG or against non-immunoglobulin serum proteins.The antibody has been tested by ELISA and/or solid-phase adsorbed to ensure minimal cross-reaction with human, bovine and horse serum proteins, but it may cross-react with immunoglobulins from other species.
Whole IgG antibodies are isolated as intact molecules from antisera by immunoaffinity chromatography. They have an Fc portion and two antigen binding Fab portions joined together by disulfide bonds and therefore they are divalent. The average molecular weight is reported to be about 160 kDa. The whole IgG form of antibodies is suitable for the majority of immunodetection procedures and is the most cost effective.
Usage Physical State: Freeze-dried solid
Storage and Rehydration: Store freeze-dried solid at 2-8°C. Rehydrate with the indicated volume of dH2O (see product specification sheet) and centrifuge if not clear. Prepare working dilution on day of use. Product is stable for about 6 weeks at 2-8°C as an undiluted liquid.Extended Storage after Rehydration: Aliquot and freeze at -70°C or below. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Alternatively, add an equal volume of glycerol (ACS grade or better) for a final concentration of 50%, and store at -20°C as a liquid. Expiration date: one year from date of rehydration. The expiration date may be extended if test results are acceptable for the intended use.
Purity:The antibody was purified from antisera by immunoaffinity chromatography using antigens coupled to agarose beads. Buffer: 0.01M Sodium Phosphate, 0.25M NaCl, pH 7.6 Stabilizer:15 mg/ml Bovine Serum Albumin (IgG-Free, Protease-Free) Preservative:0.05% Sodium Azide Suggested Working Concentration or Dilution Range:
1:20,000 - 1:400,000 for ELISA and Western blotting using enzyme-conjugated streptavidin1:500 - 1:5,000 for enzyme immunohisto/cytochemistry1:200 - 1:1,000 for flow cytometry and fluorescence immunohisto/cytochemistryDilution factors are presented in the form of a range because the optimal dilution is a function of many factors, such as antigen density, permeability, etc. The actual dilution used must be determined empirically.
Biotin-SP is our trade name for biotin with a 6-atom spacer positioned between biotin and the protein to which it is conjugated. When Biotin-SP-conjugated antibodies are used in enzyme immunoassays, there is an increase in sensitivity compared to biotin-conjugated antibodies without the spacer. This is especially notable when Biotin-SP conjugated antibodies are used with alkaline phosphatase-conjugated streptavidin. Apparently, the long spacer extends the biotin moiety away from the antibody surface, making it more accessible to binding sites on streptavidin. Biotinylated antibodies require an additional reagent for visualization. We offer streptavidin and Mouse Anti-Biotin conjugated to fluorophores and enzymes.
