Background

Anti-Mouse IgM (mu chain) antibody generated in goat detects specifically mouse IgM (mu chain). Immunoglobulin M is the largest antibody isotype and the first to be secreted against an initial exposure to antigen. IgM is predominantly produced in the spleen. Formed from covalently linking 5 immunoglobulins together, the approximate molecular weight of IgM is 900kDa and possesses 10 binding sites (though due to the size of most antigens, not all sites are capable of binding at once). Due to this large size, IgM is typically isolated to the serum. Anti-Mouse IgM antibody is ideal for investigators in Immunology, Microbiology, and Cell Biology.

Target Details

Mouse
Native Protein
Mouse IgM whole molecule
Anti-Mouse IgM (mu chain) was prepared from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity chromatography using Mouse IgM coupled to agarose followed by solid phase adsorption(s).   Assay by immunoelectrophoresis resulted in a single precipitin arc against anti-Goat Serum, Mouse IgM and Mouse Serum. No reaction was observed against other mouse heavy or light chain proteins.

Application Details

Dot Blot, ELISA
Other  - View References
Anti-Mouse IgM (mu chain) has been tested by ELISA, dot blot, and western blot and is suitable for immunoblotting (western or dot blot), ELISA, and immunohistochemistry assays requiring lot-to-lot consistency.
