Binds mouse IgM; does not bind other mouse Igs.
IgM is a glycoprotein antibody that regulates humoral immune responses. Mouse IgM is involved in modulating B cell memory. This antibody isotype has also been implicated in the development of autoimmune responses associated with the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes in mice.
Goat Anti-Mouse IgM (μ-chain specific)-Alkaline Phosphatase antibody is specific for mouse IgM when tested against purified mouse IgA, IgG and IgM myeloma proteins.
Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.
Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (1 paper)
Goat Anti-Mouse IgM (μ-chain specific)-Alkaline Phosphatase antibody has been used for ELISA and immunofluorescence assays. The antibody can also be used for IHC (1:50) and western blot (1:30,000) applications.
Mouse plasma antibody isotype determination was performed by ELISA using alkaline phopshatase-conjugated goat anti-mouse IgM as the secondary antibody.
