Mouse anti Horse IgGb antibody, clone CVS39
recognizes equine IgGb, recently classified as equine IgG4/7 (Keggan et al. 2013
), and shows no significant binding to other IgG subclasses. Equine IgGb is an immunologlobulin with a molecular weight (MW) of approximately 160kDa, the MW of the light chain being 27kDa, common to all equine IgG subclasses, while the heavy chain has a MW of 53kDa, specific to IgGb (Sheoran et al. 1998
). Equine IgGb has been demonstrated to be involved in long lasting immunity following respiratory-related viral infections such as Equine Herpes virus Type 4 (EHV-4) (Mizukoshi et al. 2002
) and Equine Influenza (Soboll et al. 2003
In addition to Mouse anti Horse IgGb, clone CVS39, Bio-Rad also offer a range of other monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies that are specific to equine immunoglobulin classes and subclasses.
