Description

General description

IgG antibody subtype is the most abundant serum immunoglobulins of the immune system. It is secreted by B cells and is found in blood and extracellular fluids.
Fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) is a fluorescein derivative (fluorochrome) used to tag antibodies, including secondary antibodies, for use in fluorescence-based assays and procedures. FITC excites at 495 nm and emits at 521 nm.

Mouse IgG is a plasma B cell derived antibody isotype defined by its heavy chain. IgG is the most abundant antibody isotype found in mouse serum. IgG crosses the placental barrier, is a complement activator and binds to the Fc-receptors on phagocytic cells. The level of IgG may vary with the status of disease or infection.
Anti-mouse IgG is conjugated to Fluorescein Isothiocyanate (FITC), Isomer I. The F(ab′)2 antibodies isolated from goat antiserum by affinity chromatography, react specifically with mouse IgG Fc; does not bind other mouse Igs. No cross reaction is observed with mouse Fab fragment. The antibody shows minimal cross reaction with human, horse and bovine proteins on tissue or cell preparations.

Specificity

Goat polyclonal anti-Mouse IgG (Fc specific) F(ab′)2 fragment−FITC antibody isolated from goat antiserum by affinity chromatography reacts specifically with mouse Fc fragment. No cross reaction is observed with mouse Fab fragment. The antibodies are adsorbed to assure minimal cross reaction with human, horse and bovine proteins on tissue or cell preparations.

Immunogen

Purified Fc fragments of mouse IgG

Application

Anti-Mouse IgG (Fc specific) F(ab′)2 fragment-FITC antibody produced in goat has been used in :
• flow cytometry for labelling of human peripheral blood lymphocytes (dilution of 1:100) and label human polymorphonuclear cells (PMNs) (dilution of 1:50).
• immunocytochemistry using human embryonic stem cells
• immunohistochemistry at a working dilution of 1:160.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 1% bovine serum albumin and 15 mM sodium azide.

Biochem/physiol Actions

immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody provides protection from infections caused by bacteria, fungi and viruses. Maternal IgG is transferred to fetus through the placenta that is vital for immune defence of the neonate against infections. IgG antibody participates in complement fixation and opsonization.

Other Notes

Antibody adsorbed with bovine, equine and human serum proteins.

Preparation Note

Adsorbed to reduce background with bovine, horse or human samples.
Useful when trying to avoid background staining due to the presence of Fc receptors.
