Mouse anti Monkey IgA antibody, clone IgA5-3B recognizes monkey IgA and does not cross-react with IgG or IgM.
This product was prepared from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity chromatography using Monkey IgA coupled to agarose beads followed by solid phase adsorption(s) to remove any unwanted reactivities. Assay by immunoelectrophoresis resulted in a single precipitin arc against Anti-Goat Serum, Monkey IgA and Monkey Serum. No reaction was observed against Monkey IgG or Monkey IgM. Specificity was confirmed by ELISA at less than 1% cross reactivity against other monkey heavy or light chain isotypes.
Monkey IgA alpha heavy chain
Antibody format: IgG
Supplied in 0.1 M Sodium Borate, 0.075 M Sodium Chloride, 0.005 M EDTA, pH 8.0
Mouse / IgG1
<0.1% sodium azide
Anti-Monkey secondary antibodies are affinity-purified antibodies with well-characterized specificity for non-human primate (e.g. monkey) immunoglobulins and are useful in the detection, sorting or purification of its specified target. Secondary antibodies offer increased versatility enabling users to use many detection systems (e.g. HRP, AP, fluorescence). They can also provide greater sensitivity through signal amplification as multiple secondary antibodies can bind to a single primary antibody. Most commonly, secondary antibodies are generated by immunizing the host animal with a pooled population of immunoglobulins from the target species and can be further purified and modified (i.e. immunoaffinity chromatography, antibody fragmentation, label conjugation, etc.) to generate highly specific reagents.
This product is shipped at ambient temperature. It is recommended to aliquot and store at -20°C on receipt. When thawed, aliquot the sample as needed. Keep aliquots at 2-8°C for short term use (up to 4 weeks) and store the remaining aliquots at -20°C.
Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
