Mouse anti Rainbow Trout Ig, clone 2C7 recognizes immunoglobulin heavy chain from Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), additionally clone 2C7 recognizes Ig from closely related piscine species belonging to the Oncorhynchus genera but not from Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) (Kibenge, et. al. 2002) or more distantly related species such as Zebra Fish (Danio rerio).

Rainbow trout is one of a number of salmonid fish species widely used in the aquaculture industry in many countries. As with other farmed salmonid species, the close proximity of many individuals in a confined area leads to increased incidences of disease caused by a range of fungal, protozoan, bacterial and viral pathogens. The development of vaccine and treatment regimes is essential to combat these infections.

Clone 2C7 may be used to detect bacterial and viral infections in trout and salmon, and to identify the presence of unknown parasites indirectly by measurement and monitoring of serum immunoglobulins. Monoclonal antibodies specific to salmonid Ig have been demonstrated to be of use in measuring the efficacy of salmonid vaccines (Rømer Villumsen, et. al. 2012 and Chettri, et. al. 2013).
