Chicken Anti-Chicken IgY, DyLight®405 Polyclonal IgY Antibody is a polyclonal antibody produced in chickens that specifically recognizes and binds to the IgY antibodies found in chickens. This antibody has been conjugated to the fluorophore DyLight®405, which emits a blue-violet fluorescence when excited by light at 405 nm.
The chicken IgY antibody is commonly used in research to detect and quantify the presence of chicken antibodies in samples, such as in ELISA assays, western blotting, and immunohistochemistry. The use of chicken antibodies has several advantages over traditional antibodies derived from mammals, including low cross-reactivity with mammalian antibodies and a lower risk of inducing an immune response in mammalian hosts.
The DyLight®405 conjugation of the chicken anti-chicken IgY antibody provides enhanced sensitivity and specificity in immunofluorescence applications. The fluorophore has high photostability and minimal background noise, which makes it ideal for multicolor labeling experiments and imaging studies.
Overall, the Chicken Anti-Chicken IgY, DyLight®405 Polyclonal IgY Antibody is a valuable tool for researchers working in the field of immunology and protein research.
