When evaluated in flow cytometry, the product did not stain human peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs). Anti-Mouse IgG (whole molecule), F(ab’)2 fragment FITC, Catalog Number F2883, along with 1 mg of the product was incubated with human PBLs and then evaluated by flow cytometry.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 1% bovine serum albumin and 15 mM sodium azide.


Mouse IgG2a Isotype Control antibodies can be used for affinity chromatography and chromatin immunoprecipitation . The product can also be used for flow cytometry.

Mouse IgG2a Isotype Control clone UPC-10 is recommended as a negative control in flow cytometry. Working Concentration: equal concentrations of isotype control and primary antibody are recommended for use in flow cytometry.

General description

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 . Mouse IgG2a antibodies react with anti-mouse whole serum and anti-mouse IgG2a. The antibody product can be used as controls in immunoassays.

Isotype controls are non-reactive immunoglobulins of the same isotype as the primary antibody being used in an application. It is recommended that a non-reactive immunoglobulin of the same isotype and concentration be included as a negative control for each monoclonal antibody reagent used in flow cytometry or other immunoassays.
