Igg

Igg --> immunoglobulin g

(Science: immunology) The classical immunoglobulin class also called 7S igg (150 kD).

Composed of two identical light and two identical heavy chains, the constant region sequence of the heavy chains being of the type. The molecule can be described in another way as being composed of two fab and an fc fragment.

The Fabs include the antigen combining sites, the fc region consists of the remaining constant sequence domains of the heavy chains and contains cell binding and complement binding sites.

immunoglobulin Gs act on pathogens by agglutinating them, by opsonising them, by activating complement mediated reactions against cellular pathogens and by neutralising toxins. They can pass across the placenta to the foetus as maternal antibodies, unlike other ig classes. In humans four main subclasses are known, IgG2 differs from the rest in not being transferred across the placenta and IgG4 does not fix complement. Immunoglobulin g is present at 8-16 mg/ml in serum.

Synonym: gamma globulin.

... of a name. However, you could specify the antibodies, for example: immmunihistochemistry using goat anti-VEGFR primary antibody and anti-goat-IgG secondary antibody conjugated to horseradish peroxidase.

Re: Difference between ICC and IF

... antibody (called the primary antibody) might be raised in a rabbit, while the second antibody (the secondary antibody) is a generic anti-rabbit IgG antibody carrying a fluorescent tag. Once someone has made a fluorescent antibody to rabbit IgG, it can be used as a secondary antibody along with ...

Re: How to draw graphs for SDS PAGE results?

yes that is IgG (150 KDa) split into light and heavy chain fragment, hence 50 KDa and 25 KDa. By migration distance you mean Rf value? dist travelled by the band/ distance travelled by the dye right? If yes, then the X axis value ...
