General description

Immunoglobulin G (IgG) belongs to the immunoglobulin family and is a widely expressed serum antibody. An immunoglobulin has two heavy chains and two light chains connected by a disulfide bond. It is a glycoprotein. IgG is a major class of immunoglobulin. Mouse consists of five immunoglobulin classes- IgM, IgG, IgA, IgD and IgE. Mouse IgG is further divided into five classes- IgG1, IgG2a, IgG2b and IgG3.
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.

Specificity

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.

Application

Mouse IgG2a Isotype Control from murine myeloma has been used in:
  • immunoprecipitation
  • enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)
  • fluorescence microscopy
  • indirect immunocytochemistry

Biochem/physiol Actions

Immunoglobulin G (IgG) participates in hypersensitivity type II and type III reactions. It mainly helps in immune defense. IgG helps in opsonization, complement fixation and antibody dependent cell mediated cytotoxicity. IgG2a has cytotropic properties and IgG2 molecules have the ability to activate the complement system.

Physical form

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