Product Name :
Rabbit anti Bovine beta lactoglobulin

Description :
| Clone Polyclonal | Units 1 ml | Host Rabbit

Background :
Beta-lactoglobulin is the dominant protein in bovine milk, synthesized in mammary gland tissue. It is a glycoprotein present mainly as a dimer at intermediate concentrations near the isoelectric point. The molecular weight of the monomeric subunit is near 17,000. It is very sensitive to denaturation. Any treatment of native milk and also prolonged storage in the deepfreeze will lead first to polymerization (octamers and higher polymers) aggregation and finally to denaturation. Three genetic variants A, B and C have been identified. They differ very little in the amino acid constellation an their behavior under pH and temperature various conditions. No immunological differences was found between the variants. Beta-lactoglobulin can be purified in crystallized form. Allergic reactions of infants to bovine milk proteins are well known. The actual process by which such reactions develop and their impact on the infant’s health have not been unambiguously established. Circulating antibodies to beta-lactoglobulin have been demonstrated in sera of some infants. Freund’s complete adjuvant is used in the first step of the immunization procedure.

Source :
The defined antibody specificity is directed to beta-lactoglobulin as tested against bovine milk. In immunoelectrophoresis and double radial immunodiffusion (Ouchterlony) no reaction has been obtained with bovine serum. As precipitating antiserum to identify or measure bovine beta-lactoglobulin by a variety of immunodiffusion techniques, including immunoelectrophoresis, single and double radial immunodiffusion (Mancini, Ouchterlony) and electroimmunodiffusion (Laurell). It has not been tested for use in nephelometry, ELISA or immunochemistry, but this does not exclude such use if proper controls are included. <

Product :
Delipidated, heat inactivated, lyophilized, stable whole antiserum No preservative added. Total protein and IgG concentrations in the antiserum are comparable to those in pooled rabbit serum. No foreign proteins added. Reconstitute the lyophilized antiserum by adding 1 ml sterile distilled water. Formulation: Delipidated, heat inactivated, lyophilized, stable whole antiserum No preservative added. Total protein and IgG concentrations in the antiserum are comparable to those in pooled rabbit serum. No foreign proteins added.

Specificity :
Precipitating polyclonal Rabbit antiSerum to Bovine beta-lactoglobulin. Species Reactivity: Homologous proteins of different species frequently share antigenic determinants. Cross-reactivity has been observed with milk of Sheep and Goat.

Applications :
Precipitation assays. In immunoelectrophoresis use 2 μl serum, plasma or equivalent against 120 μl antiserum. In double radial immunodiffusion (Ouchterlony) use a rosette arrangement with 10 μl antiserum in a 3 mm diameter centre well and 2 μl serum samples (neat and serially diluted) in 2 mm diameter peripheral wells. In single radial immunodiffusion and electroimmunodiffusion use 0.5 to 1.0 percent antiserum in the agar gel.

Storage :
The lyophilized antiserum is shipped at ambient temperature and may be stored at +4°C; prolonged storage at or below -20°C. Dilutions may be prepared by adding phosphate buffered saline (PBS, pH 7.2). Repeated thawing and freezing should be avoided. If a slight precipitation occurs upon storage, this should be removed by centrifugation. It will not affect the performance of the antiserum. Diluted antiserum should be stored at +4°C, not refrozen, and preferably used the same day.

References :

Antibodies are immunoglobulins secreted by effector lymphoid B cells into the bloodstream. Antibodies consist of two light peptide chains and two heavy peptide chains that are linked to each other by disulfide bonds to form a “Y” shaped structure. Both tips of the “Y” structure contain binding sites for a specific antigen. Antibodies are commonly used in medical research, pharmacological research, laboratory research, and health and epidemiological research. They play an important role in hot research areas such as targeted drug development, in vitro diagnostic assays, characterization of signaling pathways, detection of protein expression levels, and identification of candidate biomarkers.
