Description: The monoclonal rat IgG1, kappa is useful as an isotype control immunoglobulin.
Applications Reported: This rat IgG1 isotype control has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: Rat IgG1 K Isotype Control PE-Cyanine7 has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This can be used at the same concentration as the experimental antibody. This can be used at less than or equal to 1 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light.
Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 µL cell sample + 100 µL IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (cat. 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically.
Excitation: 488-561 nm; Emission: 775 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
Rat IgG1 is a subclass of immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies that are commonly used in research and diagnostics. These antibodies are produced by rats in response to an antigen and can be purified from serum or hybridoma cell culture supernatants. Rat IgG1 is often used as a negative control in experiments, as it does not bind to many mammalian antigens. It is also used in immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, and western blotting to detect specific antigens. Gene targeting is a powerful tool used to manipulate the rat genome and generate animal models for studying human diseases. With gene targeting, specific genes can be knocked out, inserted, or modified to investigate their role in disease pathogenesis.
