Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notesICC: 1/50 - 1/200.
    IHC-P: 1/50 - 1/200. Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections require antigen retrieval by boiling tissue in 10 mM citrate pH 6.0 for 10-20 minutes, followed by cooling at RT for 15-20 minutes.
    IHC-Fr: 1/50 - 1/200.
    Use streptavidin-Biotin system or polymer system.

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • RelevanceAll five immunoglobulin classes share the same basic four polypeptide chain structure of two heavy-chains and two light chains. There are five heavy chain types, and two light-chain types (Kappa and Lambda) both having a molecular weight of 22.5kDa. Any heavy-chain type can associate with either light-chain type, but on any immunoglobulin molecule both light-chains are of the same type. Kappa and Lambda consist of a variable region and a constant region and can easily be differentiated by the antigenic properties of the constant region. The ratio of Kappa to Lambda is 70:30 , the vast majority of which is bound to heavy-chain in immunoglobulin. In normal individuals low levels of free light-chain arepresent in serum (kappa, 1.6-15.2 mg/L; Lambda, 0.4-4.2mg/L), with the occurrence of multiple myeloma or other B-cell malignancies these levels can be greatly elevated and can be found at high levels in the urine (Bence-Jones proteins).
