Camelid single domain antibodies (sdAbs) consist only of one antigen binding site of an Alpaca heavy chain antibody. With only ~15 kDa, these Tags are about 10-times smaller than conventional IgG antibody molecules.
|Cat. No. N0702-AF568-S||
500 µl purified antibody, lyophilized from PBS. For reconstitution add 500 µl H2O. Either add 1:1 (v/v) glycerol, then aliquot and store at -20°C until use, or store aliquots at -80°C without additives.
Reconstitute immediately upon receipt! Avoid bright light when working with the antibody to minimize photo bleeching of the fluorescent dye.
Immunocytochemistry (ICC) on 4% PFA fixed cells. Immunoreactivity is usually revealed by fluorescence. Some antibodies require special fixation methods. For details, please refer to the “Remarks” section.', $event)" style="cursor: help;">ICC: yes

|Label||AZdye 568, two fluorophores coupled to one FluoTag|
Reacts with: chicken.
No signal: mouse, rabbit, Guinea pig, donkey, rat, goat, pig, horse, cow, human.
Other species not tested yet.
|Specificity||Chicken IgY, does not cross-react with mouse, rabbit, guinea pig or rat immunglobulins|
Unlabeled variants and several modifications of sdAbs like biotin, fluorophore or DBCO conjugation are available.
IgY is the major immunoglobulin found in chicken eggs. FluoTag®-X2 anti-chicken is a species-specific FluoTag®-X2 directed against immunoglobulin IgY from chicken.
In FluoTag®-X2, two fluorophore molecules are coupled site-specifically to one individual FluoTag® molecule. Therefore, the reagent targets four fluorophores to your primary chicken antibody.
Due to the monovalent binding, there are no primary and secondary antibody clusters formed, leading to better epitope accessibility and a more precise localization.
