Does anyone out there have experience with chicken IgY antibodies? I
understand that there are many advantages, such as short immunization schedule
and very high yield for typical proteins. What I would like to know is how
does IgY compare to mammalian IgG when used for immunocytochemistry,
precipitation, western blotting, etc. Are they comparable? How about the cost
of immunization, purification, and secondary antibodies?
Any response is greatly appreciated. Happy holidays.
