IgG canine in vitro SimpleStep ELISA® (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of canine IgG in serum samples.
The 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. TMB substrate is added and during incubation is catalyzed by HRP, generating blue coloration. This reaction is then stopped by addition of Stop Solution completing any color change from blue to yellow. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured at 450 nm. Optionally, instead of the endpoint reading, development of TMB can be recorded kinetically at 600 nm.
There are six classes of immunoglobulins in canine: IgA, IgD, IgE, IgM, and IgG. IgG is the most abundant immunoglobulin in serum and is equally distributed in blood and tissue. In canine, the IgG class is further divided into four subclasses: IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, and IgG4. 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 ike 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.
