General description

Immunoglobulins (Igs) belong to the immunoglobulin super-family. IgG is an abundant protein in human serum. The four classes of IgG include IgG1, IgG2, IgG3 and IgG4.. The IgG heavy chain region is mapped to human chromosome 14. Igs have two heavy (H) and two light (L) chains, held together by disulfide linkages. The heavy chain has one variable N-terminal region and three to four constant (CH1-CH4) C-terminal regions. The L chain comprises of one variable N-terminal region and a constant C-terminal region.


Anti-Mouse IgG (whole molecule) F(ab′)2 fragment-Cy3 antibody produced in sheep was used for BrdU staining of frozen quail muscle cross sections at a dilution of 1:200 to analyze activated, proliferating muscle precursor cells.
Anti-Mouse IgG (whole molecule) F(ab′)2 fragment−Cy3 antibody produced in sheep has been used:
  • in immunolabeling of Hela cells
  • as secondary antibody in immunocytochemistry of dendritic cells
  • as secondary antibody in immunofluorescence analysis of mesenchymal stem cells
  • as secondary antibody in immunofluorescence staining keratinocyte cell lines
  • in immunohistochemistry of articular cartilage

The product binds to all mouse Igs and is useful when trying to avoid background staining due to the presence of Fc receptors.

Biochem/physiol Actions

IgG antibody subtype is the most abundant of serum immunoglobulins of the immune system. It is secreted by B cells and is found in blood and extracellular fluids and provides protection from infections caused by bacteria, fungi and viruses. Maternal IgG is transferred to fetus through the placenta that is vital for immune defense of the neonate against infections. The coupling of Cy3 to Anti-Mouse IgG (whole molecule) F(ab′)2 fragment antibody allows for the visualization of protein by fluorescent microscopy.
Digestion of IgG by papain results in the generation of fragment antigen binding (Fab). Pepsin digestion of IgG results in fragment crystallizable (Fc). The Fc region of IgG antibody has enormous therapeutic potential and is exploited for the development of therapeutic antibodies.
