Overview

  • Product name
    Mouse IgG1 kappa [MOPC-21] (FITC) - Isotype Control
    See all Mouse isotype controls
  • Conjugation
    FITC. Ex: 493nm, Em: 528nm
  • Conjugation notes
    Conjugated with Fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) under optimum conditions. The reagent is free of unconjugated FITC.
  • Specificity
    ab106163 (clone MOPC-21) has unknown specificity and was chosen as an isotype control after screening on variety of resting, activated, live and fixed Rat and Human tissues.
  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: WB, IP, IHC-P, IHC-Fr, Flow Cytmore details
  • General notes
    ab106163 is intended as isotype control for flow cytometry analysis to establish the amount of non-specific antibody binding. For your particular experiment, use the same concentration of this isotype control antibody as the recommended working concentration of the antigen-specific antibody. Also, when working with prediluted antibodies, dilute the isotype control to the same concentration as is the concentration of the antigen-specific antibody in the prediluted antibody solution you are using. If under particular experimental conditions the background signal of the isotype control is too high (usually when working concentrations of used antibodies are above 10 µg per ml of incubation mixture), change the conditions of your experiment to reduce the background.

Thank you for your reply.

Sorry to keep asking you questions, but the customer ID you gave me is for a Dr Alejandro Gomez, is that correct. I ask as its does not mentioned Bone Interface Group in their address that we have on file and I just wanted to make sure that the quote went to the correct person.

Thank you for your patience, and I look forward to your reply.

Thank you very much for your interest in abcam antibodies. To our knowledge,these primary antibodies (ab27333, ab47095, ab30437 and ab11155)have not been tested in Western Blot and ICC/IF. They have been tested only in Flow cytometry as shown on the datasheets. Therefore, I can offer a discount off a future purchase if you buyone or allof themnow, test it/them in Western Blot and/or ICC/IF and submit feedback to us in the form of an Abreview. It doesn’t matter whether the Abreview is positive or negative, we would just really like to receive your feedback. The discountwould be to the value of 1 free primary antibody for each tested antibody. If you are interested in this offer, please follow these steps: 1. Reply to this e-mail to let me know that you would like to proceed and teston of those antibodiesin Western Blot and/or ICC/IF. I will then send a discount code. This code must be issued before purchasingthe antibodyso please wait for my reply before ordering. 2. Purchasethe primary antibody to be testedeither by phone, fax, or online (www.abcam.com). 3. Test it in Western Blot and/or ICC/IF. 4. Let us know the results, positive or negative, using our Abreview system (this will take about 10 minutes and images are great if you have them!). To find out how to submit an Abreview, please visit: https://www.abcam.com/abreviews. 5. After the review is submitted to us, the discount code becomes active. Simply place your new order by phone, fax, or on the web and mention the discount code. The discount can be redeemed for any ordered and the discount code is valid for 4 months after issue. We are always pleased to obtain feedback about our products and any information is greatly appreciated! Even ifthe tested antibodyturns out to be unsuitable for Western Blotor ICC/IF, you will still receive the discount on your next purchase after your Abreview has been submitted. Please let me know if you have any questions about this offer and I would be happy to help you further. The Terms and Conditions of this offer can be found at: www.abcam.com/collaborationdiscount. I would like to confirm that ab106163 (Mouse IgG1 conjugated to FITC)can be used asisotype control with ab27333, ab47095, ab30437 and ab11155.

Answer

If the antibody datasheets only list "flow cytometry" in the Applications section, then that is the only application that has been tested. It is possible that the antibodies could also work for western blotting or ICC, but these applications have not been tested, and they are not covered by our guarantee.

Answer

A cells-only control with no antibody will show the contribution of autofluorescence of the cells themselves. Most people use this to set up the flow cytometer. An isotype control (cells incubated with the same isotype of antibody as the target-specific antibody) will include autofluorescence signal but also the non-epitope-specific interaction of the antibody with the samples. Examples of these interactions include the binding of the Fc region of the antibody to Fc receptors on the cells, and any non-epitope-specific antibody-protein interactions (for instance, hydrophobic interactions) . You could use this isotype control to adjust your flow cytomer settings but most people include it as an experimental control, after setting up the flow cytometer with cells-only. You will be able to see if there is any signal from the isotype interactions by comparing the isotype control to the cells-only control. The antibodies conjugated to FITC that you asked about are all isotype IgG1 (ab30437, ab27333, ab11155). An appropriate isotype control is ab106163: Click here (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=106163). I hope this helps. If you have any questions, please contact me.

Question
Answer

Thank you for contacting us. The current lot of the anti-CD162 FITC conjugate, ab88033, lot *****, is 0.01 mg/ml. The isotype control we were looking at, ab106163, is 1.0 mg/ml, so you will want to dilute that 100-fold to match the concentration of ab88033. For the best control, especially if you are staining live cells that are sensitive to azide, you will want to make this dilution with the PBS buffer that ab88033 is presented in: Preservative: 15mM Sodium Azide Constituents: 0.2% BSA (high-grade, protease free), PBS. For each flow cytometry test, add 20 ul antibody per 100 ul suspension of 10e6 cells. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions.
