Technical Info

F(ab')2 fragment antibodies are generated by pepsin digestion of whole IgG antibodies to remove most of the Fc region while leaving some of the hinge region. F(ab')2 fragments have two antigen-binding Fab portions linked together by disulfide bonds and therefore they are divalent. The average molecular weight is about 110 kDa. They are used for specific applications, such as to avoid binding of secondary antibodies to live cells with Fc receptors or to Protein A or Protein G.

Based on immunoelectrophoresis and/or ELISA, the antibody reacts with the F(ab')2/Fab portion of rat IgG. It also reacts with the light chains of other rat immunoglobulins. No antibody was detected against the Fc portion of rat IgG or against non-immunoglobulin serum proteins. The antibody has been tested by ELISA and/or solid-phase adsorbed to ensure minimal cross-reaction with human, bovine and horse serum proteins, but it may cross-react with immunoglobulins from other species.
Physical State: Freeze-dried solid
Storage: Store freeze-dried powder at 2-8°C. When ready to use, rehydrate with indicated volume of d. water and centrifuge if not clear. Store at 2-8°C - DO NOT FREEZE. Prepare working dilution fresh each day.
Expiration date: six months from date of rehydration. However, the expiration date may be extended if the product is stored according to the recommendation and the test results are acceptable for its intended use.
Purity: The antibody was purified from antisera by a combination of pepsin digestion and immunoaffinity chromatography using antigens coupled to agarose beads. Fc fragments and whole IgG molecules have been removed.
Buffer: 0.01M Sodium Phosphate, 0.25M NaCl, pH 7.6
Stabilizer: 15 mg/ml Bovine Serum Albumin (IgG-Free, Protease-Free)
Preservative: 0.05% Sodium Azide

Suggested Working Concentration or Dilution Range:

1:50 - 1:200 for most applications

Dilution factors are presented in the form of a range because the optimal dilution is a function of many factors, such as antigen density, permeability, etc. The actual dilution used must be determined empirically.

Allophycocyanin (APC)

Amax: 650 Emax: 660nm

Allophycocyanin (APC) is among several kinds of light-harvesting phycobiliproteins found in red, blue-green, and cryptomonad algae. APC is isolated from the blue-green alga Spirulina, and is chemically cross-linked for stability. After phycobiliproteins are conjugated to secondary antibodies, there is little fluorescence quenching, which results in conjugates of high specific fluorescence compared with conventional fluorophore-antibody conjugates. APC can be excited by light over a wide range of the visible spectrum, is highly water soluble, has a relatively low isoelectric point, and lacks potentially sticky carbohydrates.

It should be noted that the relatively high molecular weight of APC may preclude its use in procedures requiring good penetration into cells and tissues. It is predominantly intended for surface labeling of cells for flow cytometry.
