Antigen/Purification: ExpandCollapse

Chickens were immunized with two synthetic peptide / keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) conjugates. These synthetic peptides corresponded to different regions of the MAP-2 gene product, but are shared between the human (NP_002365, NCBI) and mouse (P20357, NCBI) sequences. After repeated injections, immune eggs were collected, and the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks. These IgY fractions were then affinity-purified using a peptide column, and the concentrations of the eluates adjusted to 200 ug/ml. Finally, equal volumes of both of these affinitypurified anti-peptide antibodies were mixed, 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 antibodies should have a shelf life of at least 12 months (provided they remain sterile). Do not freeze these antibodies unless you want to store them for longer periods of time. Note, however, that each time an antibody preparation is frozen, about half of its binding activity is lost.
