  • Product overview

    Immunoglobulin G (IgG) in vitro CatchPoint SimpleStep ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Immunoglobulin G (IgG) protein in rat serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatant.


    This CatchPoint SimpleStep ELISA kit has been optimized for Molecular Devices Microplate Readers. Click here for a list of recommended Microplate Readers.
    If using a Molecular Devices’ plate reader supported by SoftMax® Pro software, a preconfigured protocol for these CatchPoint SimpleStep ELISA Kits is available with all the protocol and analysis settings at www.softmaxpro.org.


    The CatchPoint SimpleStep ELISA employs an affinity tag labeled capture antibody and a reporter conjugated detector antibody which immunocapture the sample analyte in solution. This entire complex (capture antibody/analyte/detector antibody) is in turn immobilized via immunoaffinity of an anti-tag antibody coating the well. To perform the assay, samples or standards are added to the wells, followed by the antibody mix. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material. CatchPoint HRP Development Solution containing the Stoplight Red Substrate is added. During incubation, the substrate is catalyzed by HRP generating a fluorescent product. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured in a fluorescence plater reader at 530/570/590 nm Excitation/Cutoff/Emission.

  • Notes

    There are four classes of immunoglobulins in rat: IgA, IgE, IgM, and IgG. IgG is the most abundant immunoglobulin and is equally distributed in blood and tissue. In rat, the IgG class is further divided into four subclasses: IgG1, IgG2a, IgG2b, and IgG2c. The general immunoglobulin structure is composed of four polypeptide chains, two heavy and two light chains linked together and to each other by disulfide bonds, creating a tetrameric quaternary structure. The resulting tetramer creates two identical halves which together form a Y like structure. While the amino-terminal portions that exhibits highly variable amino-acid composition are involved in antigen binding, the C terminal constant parts are involved in complement binding, placental passage and binding to cell membrane.

    IgG is involved in response to a foreign antigen and the presence of IgG usually signifies a mature antibody response. IgG has a molecular weight of about 150 kDa, can bind to many pathogens and also plays an important role in antibody dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity. Typically rat serum and plasma samples contain about 7 to 10 mg/ml of IgG.
