Immunoglobulin G (IgG) is a glycoprotein antibody that regulates immune responses such as phagocytosis and is also involved in the development of autoimmune diseases . Mouse IgGs have four distinct isotypes, namely, IgG1, IgG2a, IgG2b, and IgG3. IgG1 regulates complement fixation in mice . Anti-Mouse IgG (whole molecule)-Peroxidase antibody is specific for mouse IgG.
Mouse IgG is a plasma B cell derived antibody isotype defined by its heavy chain. IgG is the most abundant antibody isotype found in mouse serum. IgG crosses the placental barrier, is a complement activator and binds to the Fc-receptors on phagocytic cells. The level of IgG may vary with the status of disease or infection.
Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of chromogenic substrates such as o-phenylenediamine (OPD), 4-chloro-1-naphthol 3,3′,5,5′-tetramethylbenzidine (TMB), 3,3′-Diaminobenzidine (DAB) or 2,2′-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulphonic acid) (ABTS); chemiluminescent substrates such as CPS-3 (enhanced luminal) and fluorogenic substrates such as Ampliflu™ Red into detectable chromophores, light-emitters or fluorescers, respectively.
Sheep polyclonal anti-Mouse IgG (whole molecule)–Peroxidase antibody reacts with mouse IgG in vitro and in mouse serum and biological fluids. It does not react with human serum proteins.
Purified mouse IgG
Anti-Mouse IgG (whole molecule)-Peroxidase antibody is suitable for use in peptide arrays (1:500) and western blot. The product can also be used for direct ELISA (1:10,000).
Sheep polyclonal anti-Mouse IgG (whole molecule)–Peroxidase antibody may be used to detect and quantitate the level of IgG in mouse serum and biological fluids via chromogenic, chemoluminescent or fluorogenic immunochemical or immunohistochemical techniques. It may also be used as a secondary antibody in assays that use mouse IgG as the primary antibody. Immunostaining was performed using HRP-conjugated sheep anti-mouse IgG (SAM) diluted in 1% BSA-TBS. HRP was visualized using Na nitroprusside and o-clianisidine (Sigma).
