Host: Rabbit Polyclonal
Rat IgG antibodies are specifically designed for the detection of multiple primary antibodies (polyclonal or monoclonal) of different host species in experiments where cells are simultaneously labeled without unwanted cross reaction. These specific antibodies are proliferated in rats following the introduction of a disease or virus, and are extracted via a blood serum to use in the labeling of specific proteins in research. IgG antibodies are found in mammalian bodies in all body fluids and help to fight off bacterial and viral infections of body tissues, as they react with macrophages, neutrophils, and natural killer cells. IgG antibodies are also the most common type of antibody found in the body and have the ability to cross the placenta to protect the fetus from infections as well.
