EasyBlot anti-Rat IgG is an HRP-conjugated second step reagent that specifically reacts with the native, non-reduced form of Rat IgG and does not bind the reduced, denatured form. Using Easyblot decreases the interference caused by the heavy (~50 kDa) and light chains (~25 kDa) of the IgG used for immunoprecipitation (IP). EasyBlot is simple to use and results in Western Blot detection of only the target band in your IP experiments. Exercise caution when using Protein A/G for IP with EasyBlot. Protein A/G contaminants bind to rat IgG with high affinity and may cause contaminating bands with a molecular weight similar to IgG heavy chain or light chian.
To minimize background from Protein A/G contamination, we strongly recommend the use of EasyBlot Kit anti-Rat IgG (Optimized for Prot A/G) (GTX228909-01) or EasyBloker (GTX425858) to minimize protein A/G contamination.
