General description

The product binds human IgG and does not bind other human Igs.
Immunoglobulins comprise of two fragment antigen binding (Fab) and one fragment crystallizable (Fc) domains. The gene encoding IgG gene cluster is located on human chromosome 14.
Anti-Human IgG (Fc specific) antiserum is produced in goat using purified human IgG, Fc fragment, as the immunogen. Affinity isolated antibody is obtained from goat anti-human IgG antiserum by immunospecific purification which removes essentially all goat serum proteins, including immunoglobulins, which do not specifically bind to the Fc fragment of human IgG.

Specificity

Specificity for the Fc fragment of human IgG is determined by ELISA and immunoelectrophoresis (IEP). The antibody preparation is specific for human IgG, Fc fragment when tested against purified human IgA, IgG (Fc and Fab fragments), IgM, Bence Jones kappa, and Bence Jones lambda myeloma proteins. No reactivity is observed with the Fab fragment of human IgG, light chains, IgA, or IgM. The affinity purified anti-human IgG (Fc specific) reagent offers the advantage of increased sensitivity for human IgG without cross reactivity with other substances present on membrane or cell surface. The lack of interspecies cross reactivity with mouse or rat serum proteins makes this product excellent for the screening of human monoclonal antibodies produced by hybridoma cells grown in vivo in mouse or rat ascites fluids. This product has the ability to detect all human IgG subclasses in human biological fluids or tissues of normal or pathological situations such as cancer or autoimmune diseases. It is effective as a second antibody reagent in immunoassay procedures and can be used as starting material for conjugates using enzymes or fluorescent dyes.

Immunogen

Anti-Human IgG (Fc specific) antiserum is produced in goat using purified human IgG, Fc fragment, as the immunogen

Application

Anti-Human IgG (Fc specific) antibody produced in goat has been used:
  • in double-capture ELISA to measure antiglobulin responses in serum of transplant patients treated with CD52 monoclonal antibodies (CAMPATH-1G)
  • in detection of IgG levels rheumatoid arthritis patients
  • in small intestine biopsies
  • in patients with acute myocardial infarction by immunoblotting

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. Mutations in the Fc region of IgG is implicated in autoimmune diseases like Rheumatoid arthritis. Engineered Fc proteins have therapeutic significance for the treatment of autoimmune diseases.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide

Storage and Stability

For continuous use, store at 2-8 °C for up to one month. For extended storage, the solution may be frozen in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing, or storage in "frost-free" freezers, is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use.

Anti-Human Antibodies for COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) Immunoglobulin Detection Research

Antibody-based serology tests are useful in identifying subjects with an adaptive immune response to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Anti-human immunoglobulin antibodies allow for quick and simple, yet reliable assays with easy readouts and can also be adapted for high-throughput screening.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
