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 and 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. Rat IgG is purified from pooled normal rat serum by fractionation and ion-exchange chromatography.
Purified rat IgG may be used as a reference antigen, standard, blocking agent, or coating protein in a variety of immunoassays including ELISA, dot immunobinding, Western immunoblotting, immunodiffusion, and immunoelectrophoresis. Other applications include starting materials for the preparation of immunogens and solid phase immunoadsorbents. Rat IgG was used as isotype control in flow cytometry and injected into mice to induce tolerance against rat IgG.
Rat IgG is useful for structural and biological studies, as a reference standard, or as starting material for immunogen preparation.
