Scientific Data Images for Rat IgG2A Isotype Control

Detection of Rat IgG Isotype Control by Flow Cytometry

Detection of Rat IgG Control by Flow Cytometry

B16-F1 mouse melanoma cell line was stained with Rat Anti-Mouse Integrin beta1/CD29 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2405, filled histogram) or Rat IgG Isotype Control Antibody (Catalog #MAB006, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog F0105B).
Detection of Mouse IgG2a by Functional

Detection of Mouse IgG2a by Functional

CCL17-mediated chemotaxis is inhibited in a dose-dependent manner by B202 and B225.EL4 cells were incubated with mouse CCL17 at 2/mL in the presence and absence of (A) B202, (B) B225 (C) CNTO 5516 which is an irrelevant rat:mouse chimeric antibody having a mouse IgG1 Fc or (D) MAB529 (rat antibody) which is a commercial antibody that neutralizes CCL17. Assay was repeated twice with five replicates per sample each time. Data are expressed as chemotactic index (CI = Average RLU from stimulated wells/average RLU from medium control; medium control = CI of 1). Antibody dose used for each sample is indicated along the x axis. Composite CI results from both experiments are shown.

Background: IgG2A

R&D Systems offers a range of secondary antibodies and controls for flow cytometry, immunohistochemistry, and Western blotting. We provide species-specific secondary antibodies that are available with a variety of conjugated labels.

Our NorthernLights fluorescent secondary antibodies are bright and resistant to photobleaching. We are currently offering secondary antibodies recognizing mouse, rat, goat, sheep, and rabbit IgG as well as chicken IgY. These reagents are available with three distinct excitation and emission maxima, making them ideal for multi-color fluorescence microscopy.
