IHC of IgG on a FFPE Tonsil Tissue
IF of IgG on a Frozen Lupus Erythematosus Tissue
|Intended Use||For In Vitro Diagnostic Use.
This antibody is intended for use in Immunohistochemical (IHC) and Immunofluorescence (IF) applications on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissues (FFPE), frozen tissue sections and cell preparations. Interpretation of results should be performed by a qualified medical professional.
|Summary and Explanation||IgG is a monomeric immunoglobulin, comprised of two heavy chains and two light chains. This is the most abundant immunoglobulin and is approximately equally distributed in blood and tissue liquids, constituting 75% of serum immunoglobulins in humans. This is the only isotype that can pass through the placenta and bind to many kinds of pathogens. IgG protects the body against them by complement activation (classic pathway), opsonization for phagocytosis and neutralization of their toxins. There are 4 subclasses: IgG1 (66%), IgG2 (23%), IgG3 (7%) and IgG4 (4%).
IgG antibody reacts with surface immunoglobulin IgG gamma chains. This antibody is useful when identifying Leukemias, Plasmacytomas, and B-cell lineage derived Hodgkin’s Lymphomas. Due to the restricted expression of heavy and light chains in these diseases, demonstration of B-cell Lymphomas is possible with clonal gene-rearrangement studies. Lupus nephritis is an inflammation of the kidneys caused by Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. Immunofluorescence reveals positively for IgG, IgA, IgM, C3, and C1q. Clinically, hematuria and proteinuria are present, with or without nephrotic syndromes. Mesangial IgG glomerulonephritis has been recently recognized as a distinct type of glomerulonephritis. The morphologic criteria detected in these patients included mesangial dense deposits by ultrastructural studies, which were predominantly positive for IgG by immunofluorescence.
