chicken polyclonal anti-CMYC (EQKLISEEDL) (Biotin) epitope tag antibody
CMYC (EQKLISEEDL) (Biotin)
Gallus gallus domesticus and other IgY antibodies have high affinity and are easy to collect from the yolk. Gallus gallus can produce 20 more than in rabbit polyclonal. The antibody will not bind to rheumatoid factor or protein or Fc regions. This gives very much reduced background very much suited for diagnostic applications. Papain will digest IgY’s to divalent Fab antibody fragments. IgY’s are suited for Elisa kit development, Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by gallus IgY they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C. Biotin conjugates can be detected by horseradish peroxidase, alkaline phosphatase substrates or anti biotin conjugated antibodies. Avidin and Streptavidin bind to the small biotin and are couple to HRP or AP for ELISA. To break the streptavidin Biotin bond we suggest to use a 6 molar guanidine HCl solution with acidity of pH 1.6. Chickens like all bird species have IgY antibodies that are very stable and found in the yolk. Gallus Gallus domestica is the Latin name of the Chicken.
The c-MYC or myelocytomatosis gene is a transcription factor that is found in cancer and many anti-c-MYC antibodies are used for its detection.
Polyclonals and antibodies
Polyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
Scope note:Methods used for studying the interactions of antibodies with specific regions of protein antigens. Important applications of epitope mapping are found within the area of immunochemistry.
