Purified Rat Anti-Mouse C5a
Purified Rat Anti-Mouse C5a

ELISA curves from a sandwich ELISA that measures mouse C5a protein levels. The curves were generated by a sandwich ELISA using the purified I52-1486 antibody as capture antibody, doubling dilutions of recombinant mouse C5a protein as standard and biotinylated I52-278 antibody as detection antibody. Avidin-HRP and the TMB substrate were used to develop the detection stage and mean OD was measured at 450-570 nm. The standard curve is displayed as the concentration of recombinant mouse C5a in ng/ml versus the microwell absorbance (in circles). Doubling dilutions of normal mouse serum, starting at 1:2 dilution, are also shown (squares).

Recommended Assay Procedures

Recommended Assay Procedure:

The purified I52-1486 antibody is useful as a capture antibody for a sandwich ELISA that measures mouse C5a protein levels in plasma or serum samples. Purified I52-1486 as capture antibody can be paired with the biotinylated I52-278 anti-mouse C5a (Cat. No. 558028) as the detection antibody, using recombinant mouse C5a protein (Cat. No. 622597) as the standard. Addition of FUT-175 (Futhan, Cat. No. 552035) to plasma samples at the time of sample collection provides additional protection from ex-vivo activation, and therefore ensures more accurate measurements that reflect the circulating levels of complement activation products.  The purified I52-1486 antibody should be titrated between 1-4 µg/ml, diluted in carbonate buffer pH=9.5, to determine the optimal ELISA plate-coating concentration. For blocking buffer, PBS containing 10% FCS is recommended (Cat. No. 555213). To obtain linear standard curves, doubling dilutions of recombinant mouse C5a protein ranging from 156 pg to 10 ng/ml are recommended for inclusion in each ELISA plate. For specific methodology and buffer recipes, see Chapter 7: ELISA for specifically measuring the levels of cytokines, chemokines, and inflammatory mediators and their receptors. 2003. Techniques for Immune Function Analysis Application Handbook 1st Edition. BD Biosciences. This ELISA antibody pair shows no cross-reactivity with the following: recombinant mouse C3a, native human, and rat C5a.

I52-1486

The purified I52-1486 antibody reacts with the mouse C5a protein. Anaphylatoxin C5a is a bioactive cleavage product released from plasma component C5 during complement activation and is involved in mediation of a variety of cellular immune responses, as well as being potent pro-inflammatory agents. The release of this cleavage product is a reliable indicator of in vivo or in vitro complement activation. Clone I52-1486 hybridoma was generated by the fusion of spleen cells from rats immunized with recombinant mouse C5a protein. The I52-1486 antibody is specific for a neoepitope exposed in mouse C5a/C5adesArg and does not cross-react with mouse C5. This capacity makes antibody I52-1486 a preferential capture antibody for direct detection of mouse C5a from plasma or serum samples.

This antibody is routinely tested by ELISA. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Purified
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
