  • Product overview

    ab151276, an IgG mouse ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of mouse IgG in mouse serum, plasma and supernatant from cell cultures.


    This assay employs a mouse IgG specific antibody coated onto plate strips. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and IgG present in the sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody.  The wells are washed and an HRP-conjugated anti-mouse IgG detector antibody is added. After washing away unbound detector antibody, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of IgG bound.  The developing blue color is measured at 600 nm.  Optionally the reaction can be stopped with the Stop Solution which changes the color from blue to yellow and the intensity can be measured at 450 nm.

  • Notes

    There are five classes of mammalian immunoglobulins: IgA, IgD, IgE, IgM, and IgG. IgG is the most abundant immunoglobulin and is equally distributed in blood and tissue.  In mice, the IgG class is further divided into four subclasses: IgG1, IgG2a/ IgG2c (strain specific), IgG2b, and IgG3.  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.  The presence of IgG usually signifies a mature antibody response.  IgG has a molecular weight of about 150 kDa, it can bind to many pathogens and also plays an important role in antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity.  Typically mouse serum and plasma samples contain about 7 to 10 mg/ml of IgG.

The antibodies used in this kit recognize mouse IgG (H+L) and do not differentiate between IgG1 and IgG2b so this kit should work and give similar results regardless of whether you have IgG1 or IgG2b in your samples. This kit is designed for quantitatively measuring total mouse IgG, it can also be used for purified IgG.

If you need to quantify an isotype specific mouse IgG, you can also check other Abcam products (IgG1-ab133045); (IgG2a-ab133046); (IgG2b-ab136941); (IgG2c-ab157720) ; (IgG3-ab157721) for a more specific result.

ELISA kit anti-IgG works on BRAIN sample preparation (after protein extraction).
1% of triton does not interfere with the results.
1X incubation buffer is used for dilution of brain sample.
The brain sample should be diluted for a final range concentration of 200 to 1400 µg/mL of total protein (no tested out of this range). Optimal dilution is 400 µg/mL.

This is an untested sample but it should be an appropriate application with the mouse IgG ELISA kit. The lab's concern is that they have not tested the cross reaction with rabbit IgG. We know rat serum will be detected by this ELISA kit but the signal is relatively much weak. We suggest to run a negative control, i.e. no antibody but vehicle treated sample, to calibrate background issue. We ask to be careful when preparing sample to avoid contamination from rabbit blood.
