Technical Data
J1255
J Chain
Description:
J Chain serves to link two monomer units of either IgM or IgA. In the case of IgM, the J chain-joined dimer is a nucleating unit for the IgM pentamer, and in the case of IgA it induces larger polymers. It also help to bind these immunoglobulins to secretory component.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry, ELISA, Immunoprecipitation and Western Blot. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry (Frozen): 1:200
ELISA: 20ug/ml
Immunoprecipitation: 20ug/ml
Optimal working dilutions to be determined by researcher.

Hybridoma:
NS1 myeloma cells with spleen cells from Balb/c mice.

Recommended Secondary Antibodies:
I1904-06C: IgG, H&L (HRP) (X-Adsorbed) Pab Gt xMo
I1904-06H IgG, H&L (HRP) (X-Adsorbed) Pab Gt xMo
I1904-14C: IgG, Fc (HRP) Pab Gt xMo
I1904-19C: IgG, F(ab)2 (HRP) Pab Gt xMo

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.

Concentration:

Immunogen:
Human J Chain.
Purity:
Purified by Protein A affinity chromatography.
Form
Supplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.0, 0.09% sodium azide.
Specificity:
Recognizes human J chain as tested by ELISA using purified human Ig fragments as the solid phase target antigen. The antibody does not detect J chain in intact IgM in ELISA assays due to steric hindrance. In Western Blot techniques the antibody detects J chain in IgM only in reducing conditions.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
