• Product name
    Anti-Ovalbumin antibody [6C8]
    See all Ovalbumin primary antibodies
  • Description
    Mouse monoclonal [6C8] to Ovalbumin
  • Host species
  • Specificity
    The antibody reacts strongly with Ovalbumin (OA) in denatured and modified forms (native OA surface-adsorbed, heat-denatured or reduced). Strong reaction is seen in ELISA, with OA directly coated onto the microtiterwell. In dotblotting it reacts with both native and denatured OA adsorbed onto nitrocellulose. In Western blotting after SDS-PAGE, the antibody reacts with OA in reduced as well as unreduced forms.
  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: ELISA, WBmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Chicken
  • Immunogen

    Full length native protein (purified) corresponding to Chicken Ovalbumin. Purified chicken ovalbumin was treated with formaldehyde and lysine for 2 weeks at 35°C and then autoclaved for 1 h at 110°C.

Application Abreviews Notes
ELISA 1/4000.
WB 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 45 kDa.


  • Function
    Storage protein of egg white. Lack protease inhibitory activity.
  • Tissue specificity
    Major protein of egg white.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the serpin family. Ov-serpin subfamily.
  • Post-translational
    The signal sequence is not cleaved. The functional signal for membrane translocation of ovalbumin becomes accessible when the nascent chain is 50 to 60 residues long. The hydrophobic sequence which lies between residues 27 and 43 folds back on the preceding residues to form an amphipathic hairpin structure which is the signal element recognized by the membrane.
