Goat anti Monkey C3cCatalog number: GAMon/C3c/7S
In immunoelectrophoresis against fresh monkey serum, a single precipitin line is obtained in the beta-1 region representing native C3. Against serum containing partly activated C3, a precipitin line is obtained which extends from the beta-1 into the alpha-2 region, demonstrating a gradient. In old serum containing totally activated C3 a single precipitin line in the alpha-2 region is obtained. Antisera to C3c cab also react with the fragments C3b, C3bi and smaller fragments, since they all carry antigenic determinants of the C3c domain. The product does not react with any other protein components of monkey serum or plasma. As unlabelled primary or secondary antibody reagent for the indirect detection of C3c in monkey cells, tissues and body fluids in immunofluorescence and immunoenzyme methods; for the production of immunoconjugates with a selected marker; to prepare insoluble immunoaffinity adsorbents by coupling to an artificial carrier; as catching or detection reagent in non-isotopic methodology and solid phase immunochemistry (e.g. ELISA). Locally deposited immune complexes in tissue usually contain complement, pointing to activation of the classical pathway. Complement activation in vivo implies active disease and may contribute to the elicitation of the pathogenesis and he extent of tissue destruction. Sometimes the diagnosis can be based on directly on laboratory findings. When applied in any cytochemical or histochemical procedure or solids phase coupling technique, the optimum concentration of the IgG preparation should always be established by titration.
C3c is the major fragment resulting from C3 cleavage by C3 convertase and factor I. It is composed of an intact beta chain bound to two fragments of the alpha chain. C3c is isolated and purified from pooled normal rhesus monkey serum. Freund’s complete adjuvant is used in the first step of the immunization procedure.
Purified hyperimmune IgG lyophilized from a solution in phosphate buffered saline (PBS, pH 7.2) No preservative added, as it may interfere with the antibody activity. It is reconstituted by adding 1 ml sterile distilled water, spun down to remove insoluble particles, divided into small aliquots, frozen and stored at or below -20°C.
Formulation: Purified hyperimmune IgG lyophilized from a solution in phosphate buffered saline (PBS, pH 7.2) No preservative added, as it may interfere with the antibody activity.
Purified IgG fraction of polyclonal Goat antiSerum to C3c fragment of Monkey complement factor C3
Species Reactivity: The antiSerum does not cross-react with any other component of Monkey plasma. Inter-species cross-reactivity is a normal feature of antibodies to plasma proteins since they frequently share antigenic determinants. In addition to a clear reactivity with C3c of other old-world Monkeys (Cercopithecus, Cynomolgus and Baboon), this antiSerum shows also a fair amount of cross-reactivity to C3C of other species, including Chimpanzee and man.

The lyophilized product is shipped at ambient temperature and may be stored at +4°C; prolonged storage at or below -20°C. Prior to use, an aliquot is thawed slowly in the dark at ambient temperature, spun down again and used to prepare working dilutions by adding sterile phosphate buffered saline (PBS, pH 7.2). Repeated thawing and freezing should be avoided. Working dilutions should be stored at +4°C, not refrozen, and preferably used the same day. If a slight precipitation occurs upon storage, this should be removed by centrifugation. It will not affect the performance of the product.
