  • Host species

  • Target species

  • Specificity

    By immunoelectrophoresis and ELISA this antibody reacts specifically with Chicken IgG and with light chains common to other Chicken immunoglobulins. No antibody was detected against non immunoglobulin serum proteins. Reduced cross-reactivity to bovine, goat, horse, human, mouse, pig and rat was detected.

Thank you for your reply. A549 cells were recommended because they showed weak to no staining using a similar antibody.  Plus these are the results found in the Human Protein Atlas: http://www.proteinatlas.org/ENSG00000169252/cell/A-549 I'm not sure if I have a clear explanation as to why these stained well because fewer than 5% were shown to have a signal in the Human Protein Atlas, unless the antibody was binding to something non-specifically.  Did you run a no-primary control?   Let me know how the staining goes with the mouse keratinocytes.  I look forward to your reply.

Thank you for your reply and for providing the requested information. After seeing the data and your protocol, I would like to make some suggestions that may improve your results. One of my colleagues who has worked with chicken antibodies in the past has found them to be a bit "sticky" and suggested the following: Increase the amount of serum and blocking time. I see that for non-permeabilized cells you use 10% serum - I would advice increasing to 10% and incubating for 1-2 hours. Titrating the antibody concentrations - You appear to get a nice specific signal at 1:250. Continue to titrate that so that you still observe the specific signal and reduce the non-specific signal from the isotype control. Overall, the background is not too bad and this should be easy to titrate. I have contacted the laboratory regarding a negative control and will forward that information to you as soon as possible. I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions.
