Polyclonal Goat Serum E
Human J chain is a polypeptide folded within the polymeric structure of the immunoglobulin. J chain isolated from human polymeric IgA and IgM are identical by criteria of composition, peptide maps and antigenicity. Human J chain has been established as distinct from all other component chains of polymeric IgA and IgM. It has a unique primary structure. Antisera to light chains or heavy chains of human Immunoglobulins do not react with J chain. J chain is released from dimeric human myeloma IgA by sulphitolysis and purified by ion exchange chromatography in urea and gel filtration in guanidine. Its purity is tested in alkaline urea polyacrylamide gel
electrophoresis, in immunodiffusion and immunoelectrophoresis, showing it to be free of IgA, heavy or light chain contaminants.
Catalog #J1255-01

ImmunogenJ chain released and purified from dimeric human myeloma IgA by sulphitolysis.
SpecificityRecognizes human J chain. In immunoelectrophoresis and radial immunodiffusion shows a single precipitation reaction with totally reduced and alkylated polyclonal and monoclonal polymeric IgA and IgM. No reaction is obtained with the intact polyclonal or monoclonal IgA, IgM and IgG. There is also no detectable reaction with normal human serum, normal human milk, purified Ig heavy or light chains or secretory component. However a single precipitin line can be obtained with human serum after two hours incubation with 9M urea and 0.2M mercaptoethanol at pH 8.6.
