Alpaca single domain antibody, Variable domain of heavy chain of heavy-chain antibody, sdAb
Supplied in PBS, PH7.4
Camelids produce two types of antibodies: (i) conventional antibodies made of dimers of heavy and light chains and (ii) a class of IgG devoid of light chain and made of dimers of heavy chains only (HC-IgGs). The HC-IgGs comprise two antigen-binding domains (referred to as VHH or nanobodies). VHHs are the smallest available intact antigen-binding fragments with a molecular weight of around 15 KD. Alpaca VHH (TKPA107) is an isotype control antibody, which can be used as negative controls to help differentiate non-specific background signal from specific antibody signal.
