    Human IgA (immunoglobulin A) is a glycosylated protein of 160 kDa and is produced as a monomer or as a J chain linked dimer. Monomeric IgA constitutes 5-15 % of the serum immunoglobulins whereas dimeric IgA is localized to mucosa surfaces such as saliva, gastrointestinal secretion, bronchial fluids and milk. Mucosal IgA plays a major role in host defence by neutralising infectious agents at mucosal surfaces. The production is usually local and antigen specific IgA producing B cells can be found in regions under the lamina propria where they mature into dimeric IgA producing plasma cells. IgA deficiency is the most common immunodeficiency that may affect both serum and mucosal produced IgA. OR: The secretory component is a component of immunoglobulin A (IgA) which consists of a portion of the polymeric immunoglobulin receptor. Polymeric IgA binds to the polymeric immunoglobulin receptor on the basolateral surface of epithelial cells and is taken up into the cell via transcytosis. The receptor-IgA complex passes through the cellular compartments before being secreted on the luminal surface of the epithelial cells, still attached to the receptor. Proteolysis of the receptor occurs and the dimeric IgA molecule, along with the secretory component, are free to diffuse throughout the lumen.

Answer


The purification of IgA involves an ammonium sulfate precipitation as well as a series of chromatographic steps to separate IgA from the other immunoglobulins.

Based on IEP results, there are no detectable IgG, IgM, IgE, or IgD contaminants in our final product of IgA. Also, SDS-PAGE does not show a band in the region where heavy chain IgG would run.

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry. We do not have set expiration dates for our products. Most antibodies are stable and can last for anywhere from a few months to several years if stored properly, so we strongly recommend that you follow the storage instructions on the datasheet for the antibody you purchased. These conditions will vary among our antibodies and other products like proteins, therefore, it is important to verify the storage conditions for each of our products when you receive them. We guarantee all of our products to work for at least six month from the date of purchase when stored correctly. For more information on antibody storage and stability, please visit our Antibody Storage Guide on our Protocols and Troubleshooting Tips page (https://www.abcam.com/index.html?pageconfig=popular_protocols). I hope this information helps. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need anything further.
