An immunoglobulin has two heavy chain and two light chain connected by disulfide bond. It mainly helps in immune defense. It is a glycoprotein. IgG is a major class of immunoglobulin. Immunoglobulin M (IgM) belongs to the immunoglobulin family. It exists as a pentamer in the serum and has a high molecular weight. Monomeric IgM has a molecular weight of 190 kDa. Rat has five immunoglobulin classes- IgM, IgG, IgA, IgD and IgGE. IgM is present on the surface of the B lymphocytes in its monomeric form. This IgM serve as an antigen receptor to activate antibody response.

This product was prepared from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity chromatography using Rat IgM coupled to agarose beads followed by solid phase adsorption(s) to remove any unwanted reactivities. Assay by immunoelectrophoresis resulted in a single precipitin arc against Anti-Biotin, Anti-Goat Serum, Rat IgM and Rat Serum. No reaction was observed against Rat IgA or Rat IgG.
