Volume: 1 mL
Concentration: 1 mg/mL
Form: Affinity Purified
Host Species: Chicken
Species Reactivity: Human
Physical State: Liquid
Buffer: HEPES (50 mM, pH 7.0), NaCl (0.1 M), bovine serum albumin (0.2%, w/v), thimerosal (0.01%, w/v) (as an anti-microbial agent).
Specificity: There is no detectable cross-reactivity with goat, mouse or rabbit IgG
Production Notes: Chickens were immunized with purified, non-denatured human IgG (containing both heavy and light chains). Eggs were collected from hyperimmunized hens and the IgY fraction purified from the yolks. Anti-human IgG’s were affinity-purified over a column conjugated with purified human IgG (containing both heavy and light chains) and then conjugated with horseradish peroxidase.
Antibodies were tested for specificity using double-immunodiffusion in agarose gels and ELISA analysis. In the latter, a 1:300,000 dilution gave an O.D. of 1.0 in a 15 minute reaction using tetramethyl-benzidine as substrate.
Store at 4°C in the dark. Under these conditions, the antibodies should have a shelf life of at least 12 months (provided they remain sterile). For longer storage periods, dilute the antibodies with sterile glycerol and store at -20°C. Do not freeze these antibodies unless you want to store them for longer periods of time.
