Technical Info

Whole IgG antibodies are isolated as intact molecules from antisera by immunoaffinity chromatography. They have an Fc portion and two antigen binding Fab portions joined together by disulfide bonds and therefore they are divalent. The average molecular weight is reported to be about 160 kDa. The whole IgG form of antibodies is suitable for the majority of immunodetection procedures and is the most cost effective.

Based on immunoelectrophoresis and/or ELISA, the antibody reacts with the heavy chain of rat IgM but not with rat IgG or the light chains of rat immunoglobulins. No antibody was detected 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 IgM 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. Product is stable for about 6 weeks at 2-8°C as an undiluted liquid. Prepare working dilution fresh each day. For extended storage after rehydration, add an equal volume of glycerol (ACS grade or better) for a final concentration of 50%, and store at -20°C as a liquid. Note: after the addition of glycerol, the concentration of protein and buffer salts is one-half of the original. Alternatively, aliquot and freeze the product at -70°C or below in the absence of glycerol. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
Expiration date: one year 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 immunoaffinity chromatography using antigens coupled to agarose beads.
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:

1:100 - 1:400 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.

Cyanine Cy™5

Amax: 650 Emax: 670nm

Cy5 conjugates are excited maximally at 650 nm and fluoresce maximally at 670 nm. They can be excited to about 98% of maximum with a krypton/argon laser (647 nm line) or to about 63% of maximum with a helium/neon laser (633 nm line). Cy5 can be used with a variety of other fluorophores for multiple labeling due to a wide separation of its emission from that of shorter wavelength-emitting fluorophores. However, we recommend Alexa Fluor® 647 as the preferred far-red-fluorescing dye because it is brighter than Cy5 in aqueous mounting media. The reverse is true when mounting in non-polar, plastic mounting media, i.e. Cy5 is brighter than other far-red-fluorescing dyes, including Alexa Fluor® 647 and DyLight 650.
