General Info

  • Relevance
    The Fc region is the constant region on an immunoglobulin molecule, the area that is exactly the same on all antibodies. The Fc region is found on the heavy chains and is not involved in binding antigens.

Customer reviews and Q&As

We prepare IgG, FC Fragment from polyclonal IgG.

We do not know the glycosylation status of the IgG FC fragment as we do not test for this as part of our final QC analysis. We do not actively attempt to deglycosylate the FC as part of the purification procedure. I am including a general description o...

Unfortunately, we do not have information on the structure of the protein.

For the recent batch we sell, ab90285 lot# GR90653 is 2.1 mg/ml.

Thank you for your reply.

I am confident that the reference ab90285 is a suitable negative control for ab108557.
Furthermore, I have just been informed about the price of the new Fc fragments which is $424.00 for 100µg, therefore I w...

Thank you for your reply.

While we don't have an exact figure for how sensitive the immunoelectrophoresis is, we do not believe the protein will contain 1% contamination with F(ab). I hope this helps, please let me know if you need any other ...

Thank you for contactingus.

This Fc fragment protein shows no reaction to F(ab) on immunoelectrophoresis. We will guarantee this product to be free from F(ab) fragment contamination. Unfortunately, we do not currently have any other purified ...
