Epitope Tag Antibodies

ImmunoTag™ epitope tag antibodies are highly specific monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies. The epitope tags or carrier proteins are generally composed of 10-15 amino acids which act as an antigen that is recognized by an antibody. The variety of epitope antibodies are used as markers of protein localization, purification of recombinant proteins, tag detection and signal amplification. Epitope tags are added at either N- or C-terminal ends of the protein-of-interest, which upon cleavage at integrated enzymatic cleavage sites yield pure recombinant protein by removal of the tag or carrier.
