    Why Use Chicken IgY?

  • Here are top 5 reasons:

    1. Higher titres against highly conserved mammalian gene products

    2. Double immunostaining is easier to perform

    3. Animal-friendly -- we purify the antibodies from eggs, not serum

    4. Large quantities of antibody - faster and cheaper

    5. Nearly unlimited quantities (again, because the antibodies come from eggs)

Product Info

FITC-Labeled Anti-MYC Epitope Tag.  Chickens were immunized with a synthetic peptide containing the human c-myc epitope tag – EQKLISEEDL – conjugated to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH).  The sequence of this peptide corresponds to residues #425-434 of the human c-myc proto-oncogene protein (NCBI NP_002458.2).  After repeated injections, immune eggs were collected from the hens, and the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks.  These IgY fractions were then affinity-purified using an agarose matrix to which the cognate peptide was attached.  Eluates of this column were dialyzed against PBS, and then conjugated to fluorescein using its isothiocyanate form (FITC).  Fluorescein-labeled antibody was separated from free FITC using gel exclusion chromatography (Sephadex G-50), and the protein concentration was adjusted to 0.1 mg/ml in PBS with 0.02% sodium azide.  Finally, the preparation was filter-sterilized.
