General description

Anti-Human IgE antibody, Mouse monoclonal (mouse IgG2b isotype) is derived from the GE-1 hybridoma, produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from a BALB/c mouse immunized with purified human IgE myeloma protein. Immunoglobulin E (IgE) is the least abundant immunoglobulin isotype in circulation. IgE is produced by plasma cells and is highly functional in the lung, skin and mucus membranes. Normal levels of IgE in serum are less than 1 μg/ml.


purified human IgE myeloma protein


Anti-Human IgE antibody, Mouse monoclonal has been used in various immunological techniques, including enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), immunoblot, immunoprecipitation and IgE quantification using piezoelectric (Pz) crystal bioassay.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Immunoglobulin E (IgE) plays a critical role in allergic reactions and host protection from parasites. Serum IgE levels are highly elevated during an allergic reaction (such as atopic eczema, extrinsic asthma or hay fever, fungal and parasitic infection, atopic disease or primary immunodeficiency). Detection and measurement of total IgE concentrations is crucial for diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of allergy patients. In addition, the recognition and isolation of allergen-specific IgE can lead to progress in understanding of pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying IgE-associated allergic disorders.

IgE-associated allergic diseases belong to the most common inflammatory conditions. Their clinical manifestation ranges from mild symptoms to life-threatening episodes. Often patients experience a reduction in physical and psychologic well-being and suffer from a decreased quality of life due to...
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.
