Rat IgM myeloma preparation


Monoclonal Anti-Rat IgM antibody is suitable for use in indirect ELISA (1:1,000), immunocytochemistry, immunohistochemistry and dot blot.

General description

Rat immunoglobulins have seven distinct classes, namely, IgM, IgA, IgE, IgG1, IgG2a, IgG2b and IgG2c. Rat IgMs have been implicated in complement activation . Rat IgMs against target proteins are often used as primary antibodies in various research applications. Thus, secondary anti-rat IgM is a useful tool for the analysis of target proteins
Monoclonal Anti-Rat IgM antibody is specific for an epitope present on the heavy chain of rat IgM. By immunoblotting, the antibody detects the denatured-reduced heavy chain molecule of rat IgM (μ-chain). The product recognizes rat IgMs derived from normal serum or myeloma proteins, but does not detect other rat immunoglobulins. In assays such as indirect ELISA and dot blot, the antibody weakly associates with guinea pig immunoglobulins. The product does not bind to IgG or serum preparations obtained from bovine, cat, chicken, dog, goat, horse, human, mouse, pig, rabbit, or sheep.
