Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Predicted molecular weight: 36 kDa.
IHC-P 1/1000 - 1/5000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval via the pressure cooker method before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for ICC or IP.
  • Target

    • RelevanceIgG4 antibodies will dominate the IgG response in schistosomiasis, lymphatic filariasis, and in patients after allergen immunotherapy. Unlike the other IgG subclasses, IgG4 does not activate complement. A combined IgA-IgG4 deficiency has been associated with recurrent pyogenic infections.
