IgM Rat anti-Mouse, Clone: eB121-15F9, eBioscience™
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Brand: Affymetrix eBioscience 14-5890-81
Additional Details : Weight : 0.01000kg
Description: The eB121-15F9 monoclonal antibody reacts with the mu heavy chain of mouse IgM. It does not react with other classes of mouse immunoglobulin including IgD, IgG or IgA. IgM is expressed intracellularly, during early stages of B lymphopoiesis, and then on the surface of more mature B cells in the bone marrow and peripheral B cells. Fluorochrome conjugated eB121-15F9 can be used as a detection secondary for mouse IgM. Applications Reported: eB121-15F9 has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis to detect the surface IgM on mouse B cells and as a second step to detect primary mouse IgMs. It can also be used in ELISA. Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE. Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC. Filtration: 0.2 μm post-manufacturing filtered.IgM (Immunoglobulin M) is expressed intracellularly during the early stages of B lymphopoiesis, and then on the surface of more mature B cells in the bone marrow and peripheral B cells. The isotype of a primary antibody and its application can result in background staining. Primary antibody background noise can be caused by binding to Fc receptors on target cells; by non-specific interactions with cellular proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids; or by cell autofluorescence. Isotype control antibodies can act as negative controls to help differentiate non-specific background signal from specific antibody signal because they have no relevant specificity to a target antigen. While isotype controls are most commonly used in flow cytometry, they are also useful in other applications such as chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP), immunohistochemistry, and gel shifts. Isotype controls should match with the primary antibody species and isotype so that the level of specific staining by the primary antibody may be accurately determined. If using directly labeled primary antibodies, the isotype control works best if conjugated with the same label as the test antibody.
