Hamster Isotype Controls

Hamster immunoglobulins, also known as antibodies, play a crucial role in immunological research and are particularly useful in studies involving hamster models. These immunoglobulins exhibit unique characteristics that make them valuable tools for investigating immune responses, studying host-pathogen interactions, and developing diagnostics and therapeutics. Understanding the structure, function, and classification of hamster immunoglobulins is essential for harnessing their potential in biomedical research and advancing our understanding of the hamster immune system.

Hamster Immunoglobulin Classes:


IgM is the primary antibody produced in response to an infection or antigen exposure.

It exists as a pentamer and is highly efficient at neutralizing pathogens.


IgG is the most abundant antibody class in the circulation and provides long-term immune protection.

It is involved in neutralization, opsonization, and activation of complement pathways.


IgA is predominantly found in mucosal secretions, such as saliva, tears, and respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts.

It plays a critical role in preventing pathogen colonization at mucosal surfaces.


IgE is involved in allergic reactions and defense against parasites.

It triggers the release of histamine from mast cells, leading to allergic symptoms.
