Human Mouse Rat
Chickens were immunized with three synthetic peptide / keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) conjugates. These synthetic peptides corresponded to different regions of the metabotropic glutamate receptor type 5 gene product, but are shared between the human (NP_001137303.1, NCBI) and mouse (Q3UVX5.2, NCBI) sequences. After repeated injections, immune eggs were collected, and the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks. These IgY fractions were then affinity-purified using a peptide column, and the concentrations of the eluates adjusted to 300 ug/ml. Finally, equal volumes of these affinity-purified anti-peptide antibodies were mixed, and the preparation was filter-sterilized.
