Chicken IgY, whole molecule. IgY is the original designation for the IgG-like protein found in both serum and egg yolk.
The antibody was isolated from antisera by immunoaffinity chromatography using antigens coupled to agarose beads. Based on immunoelectrophoresis and/or ELISA, the antibody reacts with whole molecule chicken IgY, and with the light chains of other chicken immunoglobulins. No reactivity was detected against non-immunoglobulin serum proteins. This antibody was tested by ELISA and/or solid-phase adsorbed to ensure minimal cross-reactivity with bovine, goat, guinea pig, Syrian hamster, horse, human, mouse, rabbit, rat, and sheep serum proteins, but may cross-react with immunoglobulins from other species. The conjugate has been specifically tested and qualified for Western blot applications.
