Anti-Ovalbumin Antibodies

Ovalbumin (OVA) is widely used as an antigen for studying the IgE-mediated allergic reaction in mice. Chondrex, Inc. provides mouse anti-OVA IgE, IgA, IgM and IgG monoclonal antibodies for the studies.

Allergenic and Non-Allergenic Antibodies
In general, the cross-linkage of two adjacent IgE antibody molecules, which are attached to IgE receptors on mast cells by a polyvalent allergen, is required to trigger degranulation (also known as activation) of mast cells (Figure 1a). Alternatively, IgG antibodies to an allergen can also trigger the degranulation of mast cells by forming cross-linkage of the allergen molecules captured by IgE antibodies on mast cells (Figure 1b).
Mast cell degranulation induced by cross-linkage of allergen specific IgE & IgG antibodies
Figure 1 - Two mechanisms of mast cell-bound IgE cross-linking. a) Cross-linkage by a single allergen and b) Cross-linkage by a single IgG antibody to two allergen molecules. Mouse IgE monoclonal antibody, Clone E-C1, is capable of inducing degranulation of mast cells in vitro (Figure 2a and 2b) and severe hypersensitivity in vivo (Figure 3), suggesting that clone E-C1 might recognize the repetitive epitopes of OVA. Furthermore, it has been reported that aggregated OVA carrying multiple epitopes increases the formation of cross-linkage of IgE molecules on mast cell surfaces. On the other hand, Clone E-G5 is not capable of inducing these allergic reactions in vitro or in vivo (Figures 1a, 1b, and 2), and can be used as a control.
