"I have used a wide variety of secondaries and Jackson ImmunoResearch has consistently been the best. The fluorophores are bright and stable and their selective (x reactivity removed) secondaries have always shown species specificity in multiple labeling."Janet Duerr, Ohio University
Reporter enzyme-conjugated secondary antibodies can be used for both chromogenic and chemiluminescent detection methods when combined with an appropriate substrate. Enzyme conjugates can be applied to many immunotechniques to provide robust and sensitive detection.
|Alkaline Phosphatase-conjugated Streptavidin
This commonly used reporter enzyme is derived from the root of the horseradish plant (Armoracia rusticana). JIR HRP conjugates are prepared by a modified Nakane and Kawaoi procedure (1974).
HRP conjugates are suitable for all immunotechniques employing colorimetric and chemiluminescent detection methods, including Western blotting, immunohistochemistry and ELISA. Jackson ImmunoResearch provides a wide range of secondary antibodies, with comprehensive options for host and target species, as well as immunoglobulin specificities.

Note about endogenous peroxidase
Some tissues contain endogenous peroxidase-like enzymes which can react with peroxidase substrates, resulting in background staining. Pre-treatment of sample with hydrogen peroxide will exhaust the endogenous enzyme activity, allowing clear detection of specific signal.
Cautions regarding reagent compatibility:
Alkaline phosphatase (from calf intestine) conjugates are prepared by a method modified from Avremeas et al., (1978). The resulting conjugates contain heterogeneous, high molecular weight complexes. They are sensitive reagents suitable for solid-phase immunoassays such as ELISA and Western blotting. Although alkaline phosphatase conjugates are sometimes used for immunohistochemistry, penetration into tissues may be limited by their large sizes.
