General description

IgA antibody is secretory antibody and is present abundantly in mucous linings of gastrointestinal, respiratory and genitourinary tracts, tears and saliva. Thus secretory IgA contributes to the humoral defense mechanism against the pathogens on mucosal surfaces
Anti-Mouse IgA (α-chain specific) is specific for α chain of mouse IgA.


Purified mouse IgA (myeloma protein)


Anti-Mouse IgA (α-chain specific) is suitable for Ouchterlony Double Diffusion. The antibody was used to detect antigens to Helicobacter hepaticus in mice serum using a concentration of 5 μg/ml.

Physical form

Lyophilized from 0.01 M sodium phosphate, 0.015 M sodium chloride, pH 7.2


Reconstitute with 0.135 M sodium chloride.

To model inflammatory bowel disease, we assessed infection with Helicobacter hepaticus 3B1 (ATCC 51449) and a potential probiotic Lactobacillus reuteri (ATCC PTA-6475) in gnotobiotic B6.129P2-IL-10(tm1Cgn) (IL-10(-/-) ) mice. No typhlocolitis developed in germ-free controls (n=21) or in L. reuteri (n=8)...

Mucosae-associated epithelial chemokine (MEC or CCL28) binds to CCR3 and CCR10 and recruits IgA-secreting plasma cells (IgA-ASCs) in the mucosal lamina propria. The ability of this chemokine to enhance migration of IgA-ASCs to mucosal sites was assessed in a mouse...
