Horse IgGs have seven subclasses ranging from IgG1 to IgG7. Equine IgG antibodies mainly regulate mucosal and systemic immunological responses and thereby, provide protection against disease-causing pathogens such as Streptococcus equi, and the horse flu virus. Horse IgG may also function to control the advancement of EHV-1 infection . Anti-horse IgG (whole molecule)−peroxidase antibody is specific for IgG in horses.
The level of S2-specific antibodies in test samples of horse serum was determined by ELISA using HRP-conjugated rabbit anti-horse IgG at a 1:35000 dilution with incubation for 45 minutes at room temperature.
Anti-horse IgG (whole molecule)−peroxidase antibody may be used in dot blot (1:8,000-1:10,000), immunohistochemistry (formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections, at 1:150 dilution) and direct ELISA (1:15,000).
IgG, a monoclonal antibody can be cleaved at the hinge region by nonspecific proteases like papain and pepsin. This can result in univalent Fab (antigen-binding fragments) fragments or bivalent F(ab′)2 fragments. These two enzymes have a broad substrate specificity resulting in heterogenous fragments.
