IgG2 antibody | K68 Ig2
Studies using clone K68 Ig2 have demonstrated that along with IFNγ, porcine IgG2 levels are significantly elevated in parasite infections by worm species such as Schistosoma japonicum (Tian, F. et. al. 2010). With changes in agricultural practices and the ermergence of new strains of porcine diseases, it has been suggested that new methods of vaccine development should be investigated. Studies have shown that antibodies recognizing porcine immunoglobulins such as clone K68 Ig2 may have potential use in porcine vaccine development studies (Rodríguez-Calvo, T. et. al. 2010).
Clone K68 Ig2 forms part of a range of monoclonal antibodies specific for porcine immunoglobulins and immunoglobulin subclasses that are available from Bio-Rad.
