This antibody clone is manufactured by Abcam.
Isotype controls are used to confirm that the primary antibody binding is specific and not a result of non-specific Fc receptor binding or other protein interactions. The isotype control antibody should match the primary antibody’s host species, isotype, and possible conjugation. The control performed appropriately in all materials and platforms that were tested.
This product was previously marketed under the MitoSciences sub-brand.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab170191 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|Flow Cyt||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.|
|ICC||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.|
Immunocytochemistry (ICC) experiments with NIH-3T3 (mouse sarcoma), COS7 (monkey kidney fibroblast), H9C2 (rat myoblast) and Hela (human adenocarcinoma) were performed with the IgG2a Isotype Control Antibody (top), no primary antibody negative control (middle), and ab14705 as a positive control (bottom).
An Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugate with isotype specificity to the mouse antibody was used as a secondary antibody. The isotype control at 1 ug/mL shows no higher signal than the no primary negative control.
Flow cytometry experiments with 4% PFA fixed Hela (Human adenocarcinoma), 653s (mouse myeloma), H4IIE (rat hepatoma) and H9C2 (rat myoblast) were performed with the IgG2a Isotype Control Antibody (red) and no primary antibody negative control (black). An Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugate with isotype specificity to the mouse antibody was used as a secondary antibody. The isotype control at 1 ug/mL shows no higher signal than the no primary negative control.
An isotyping ELISA was performed by coating a 96-well plate with 1.25 ug/mL of the IgG2a Isotype Control Antibody and detecting with Alexa Fluor® conjugates specific to mouse IgG1, IgG2a, IgG2b, IgG3, IgM and heavy and light chains (H&L) of IgG. This experiment verifies that the primary antibody's isotype is correct and that it is successfully bound by the secondary antibody.
