Antigen/Purification: ExpandCollapse

Chickens were immunized with a synthetic peptide / keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) conjugate. The peptide corresponded to a region of the Choline Acetyltransferase gene product shared between the human (P28329, NCBI) and mouse (Q03059, NCBI) sequences. After repeated injections, immune eggs were collected, the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks, and then affinity-purified using a peptide column. The concentrations of the eluates were then adjusted to 100 µg/mL, and the preparation was filter-sterilized.

Phosphate-buffered (10 mM) isotonic (0.9%, w/v) saline (“PBS,” pH 7.2) with sodium azide (0.02%, w/v) added as a preservative.

Store at 4˚C in the dark. Under these conditions, the antibody should have a shelf life of at least 12 months (provided they remain sterile). Do not freeze the antibody unless you want to store it for longer periods of time. Note, however, that each time an antibody preparation is frozen, about half its binding activity is lost.
