Immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies appear early in the course of infections. IgM antibodies are responsible for agglutination of red blood cells in mis-matched blood transfusions. The level of IgM may vary with the status of disease or infection.
Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of chromogenic substrates such as o-phenylenediamine (OPD), 4-chloro-1-naphthol 3,3′,5,5′-tetramethylbenzidine (TMB), 3,3′-Diaminobenzidine (DAB) or 2,2′-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulphonic acid) (ABTS); chemiluminescent substrates such as CPS-3 (enhanced luminal) and fluorogenic substrates such as Ampliflu™ Red into detectable chromophores, light-emitters or fluorescers, respectively.
Goat polyclonal anti-Human IgM (μ-chain specific) F(ab′)2 fragment−Peroxidase antibody is specific for human IgM when tested against purified human IgA, IgG, IgM, Bence Jones Kappa and Bence Jones Lambda myeloma proteins.
purified human IgM
Goat polyclonal anti-Human IgM (μ-chain specific) F(ab′)2 fragment−Peroxidase antibody may be used to detect and quantitate the level of IgM in human serum and biological fluids via chromogenic, chemoluminescent or fluorogenic immunochemical or immunohistochemical techniques. ELISA assays on EBV +BCLs established from EBV+ human B cells were performed using HRP conjugated goat anti-human IgM mu chain specific as the secondary. Secondary antibody was incubated for 2 hrs at room temperature.
Peroxidise-conjugated goat F(ab′)2 fragment anti-human IgM (μ-chain specific) has been used as a secondary antibody to detect human IgMs to hantanvirus antigens using ELISA.
