General description

Human IgGs are glycoprotein antibodies that contain two equivalent light chains and a pair of identical heavy chains. IgGs have four distinct isoforms, ranging from IgG1 to IgG4[1][2]. Monoclonal Anti-Human IgG (Fab specific) antibody is specific for the Fab fragment of human IgG. The antibody does not react with the Fc portion of human IgG.
Monoclonal Anti-Human IgG (Fab Specific) (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from an immunized mouse. Immunoglobulin G (IgG) is found in the blood.[3] It is present in the human serum, secreted by the B cells.[4][3] IgG has the lengthiest serum half-life compared to other immunoglobulins.[3] Heavy and light chains of IgG are interconnected by disulfide bonds.[4]


Monoclonal Anti-Human IgG (Fab Specific) is immunospecific for human IgG. The antibody reacts with the Fab fragment of IgG.


Purified human IgG


Monoclonal Anti-Human IgG (Fab specific) antibody produced in mouse has been used in enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).[5][6][7]

Biochem/physiol Actions

Maternal IgG passes through the placenta to the fetus and confers immune defense of the neonate against infections.[8] IgG is implicated in antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC)[4] and also nullifies virus particles and toxins.[4] Papain digestion of IgG generates fragment antigen-binding (Fab). Pepsin digestion of IgG produces fragment crystallizable (fc) fragment and a single dimeric F(ab)2.[3]
These antibodies regulate immunological responses to allergy and pathogenic infections. IgGs have also been implicated in complement fixation and autoimmune disorders.[1][2]

Physical form

The product is provided as ascites fluid with 0.1% sodium azide (see MSDS) as a preservative.

Storage and Stability

For continuous use, store at 0-5 °C. For extended storage, solution may be frozen in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Storage in "frost-free" is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify by centrifugation before use.
