Overview

  • Product name
    Anti-Aflatoxin antibody [1C6]
  • Description
    Rat monoclonal [1C6] to Aflatoxin
  • Host species
    Rat
  • Specificity
    This antibody reacts with Aflatoxin M1 (AFM1) and Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1). It does not react with BSA and other irrelevant antigens by ELISA. A competitive binding assay using AFM1 as the binding competitor to compete with AFM1-BSA-125I showed that AFM1 can effectively inhibit the binding of this antibody to AFM1-BSA-125I and the inhibition degree corresponds to the amounts of AFM1 used. The equilibrium constant K of antibody affinity of this product is 109-1011 M-1.

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab685 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration. This antibody is reactive to purified AFB1 and AF in samples obtained from cereals contaminated with fungus Aspergellus flarus. Therefore, this antibody can be used for construction of an AF detection kit.

Target

  • Relevance
    Aflatoxins are naturally occurring mycotoxins that are produced by many species of Aspergillus.

Answer

Thank you very much for contacting us with your enquiry, and for your patience while I have been in touch with the production labs for more information about our aflatoxin antibodies.

We have three monoclonal antibodies against aflatoxin: ab685, ab1017, and ab1985. Here is the information about each of these antibodies:

Ab685: reacts with AFM1 and AFB1. It was raised against AFM1-BSA conjugate, but unfortunately the lab does not have further data regarding the detection sensitivity of the antibody.

Ab1017: reacts with AFB1, and cross-reactivity with other aflatoxins is not known at this time. It was raised against purified AFB1. It has been tested in ELISA at 5 ug/mL against AFB1 coated on wells at 1 ug/mL but the detection sensitivity not been determined.

Ab1985: reacts with AFB1 and AFB2, and it does not cross-react with G1, G2, and M1. It was raised against aflatoxin from Aspergillus flavus conjugated to BSA. The lab has been able to reach the detection limit of 0.2 ng/mL againt AFB1-BSA in competitive ELISA. In this assay, the antibody incubation was performed for 1 hour at 37C and different concentrations of antibody were used.

I hope that this information will be useful, but if you have any further questions or need anything else, please let me know and I'll be happy to help.

Thank you for contacting us.

We source this product from our collaborator supplier; unfortunately this clone is not produced by Abcam so we can't offer this. We also can not reveal the identity of collaborator supplier which is a proprietary information.

I am sorry I am unable to help in this occasion. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more information.

Answer

Thank you for contacting us.

I have the following information about ab685 Anti-Aflatoxin antibody [1C6]. The antibody was purified with Gamma-Binding Plus Sepharose from GE healthcare. The product was eluted using 0.5M acetic acid pH 3.0. The pH was adjusted with 1M Tris-HCl pH-9.0.

I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have further questions.

Answer



L'anticorps doit être aliquoté sans être diluéet stocké à -20ºC ou -80ºC. Les cycles congélation / décongélation doivent être évités.

Pour une stabilité optimale, nous recommandons un volume minimal des aliquotsde10µl et l'utilisation de tubes adaptés aux volumes choisis. Par exemple 10µl dans des tubes PCR, pas dans des tubes Eppendorf de 1.5ml.

Stockéà -20ºC l'anticorps sera stable pendant 5 ans, ou 10 anssi stockéà -80ºC.

Answer

We don't know the exact weight, but it should be similar to the IgG weight or five (5) times that of IgM. In general, it should be between 160-170 kDa. If you have any additional questions, please contact us again.

Answer

Unfortunately we do not have any information about this antibody's cross-reactivity with Aflatoxin B2, G1 and G2. I have contacted the originator of the product and they have confirmed that they have only tested this antibody as we specify on the datasheet. I am sorry that we do not have more information.

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry. Ab685 is only available as described on the online datasheet and we are unable to specially conjugate it.

Answer

Since there are different iso-forms of the AF protein and your requirement would depend largely on which form you intend on using, we do not have any details for the production of an AF detection kit.
