Physical form

Suspension in 0.5 M NaCl and 0.01% thimerosal.


Goat anti-mouse IgM (μ-chain specific)-agarose antibody has been used for immunoprecipitation and ChIP assays. The product can also be used for Ouchterlony double diffusion applications.

To isolate chimeric proteins that were fused with the IgM heavy chain, CHO supernatant was ran over a column packed with agarose-linked goat anti-mouse IgM mu chain specific.

General description

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)-agarose antibody is specific for mouse IgM when tested against purified mouse IgA, IgG (all subclasses), and IgM myeloma proteins.
