General description

Anti-Human IgG (γ-chain specific) antibody, Mouse monoclonal (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the GG-5 hybridoma, produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from mouse immunized with purified human IgG. Immunoglobulins (Igs) are produced by B lymphocytes and secreted into the plasma. Immunoglobulins can be divided into five main classes/isotypes which are IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG, and IgM. IgG class identity is determined by class-specific sequences in the Fc region of the heavy chain. IgG antibody class are the most abundant immunoglobulins isotype in blood, lymph fluid, cerebrospinal fluid and peritoneal fluid. IgGs include four subclasses (IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, and IgG4). The IgG subclasses differ in their physical and chemical properties. Their distribution pattern is found to be age dependent and every subclass has a specific biological function.


purified human IgG


Anti-Human IgG (γ-chain specific) antibody, Mouse monoclonal has been used in indirect ELISA.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Immunoglobulins (Igs) serve as key players in the humoral immune response.

Physical form
