Abcam’s IgY Chicken ELISA kit is a highly sensitive two-site enzyme linked immunoassay (ELISA) for the quantitative measurement of IgY in chicken serum or plasma samples.
In this assay the IgY present in samples reacts with the anti-IgY antibodies which have been adsorbed to the surface of polystyrene microtiter wells. After the removal of unbound proteins by washing, anti- IgY antibodies conjugated with horseradish peroxidase (HRP), are added. These enzyme-labeled antibodies form complexes with the previously bound IgY. Following another washing step, the enzyme bound to the immunosorbent is assayed by the addition of a chromogenic substrate, 3,3’,5,5’-tetramethylbenzidine (TMB). The quantity of bound enzyme varies directly with the concentration of IgY in the sample tested; thus, the absorbance, at 450 nm, is a measure of the concentration of IgY in the test sample. The quantity of IgY in the test sample can be interpolated from the standard curve constructed from the standards, and corrected for sample dilution.

RelevanceSecreted immunoglobulins have two separable functions: one is to bind specifically to pathogenic molecules, the other is to recruit cells and molecules to destroy the opsonized pathogen. IgY has a tetrameric structure consisting of two identical light chains (Mr = 24 kDa) and two identical heavy chains (Mr = 73 kDa).
