Mouse IgM is an immunoglobulin M antibody that is produced by B cells in response to an antigen. It is the first antibody produced during an immune response and is the largest immunoglobulin in the serum. Mouse IgM is composed of five heavy chains and five light chains, and it is involved in complement activation and agglutination of antigens. It plays a crucial role in the innate immune response and is important for neutralizing pathogens before the adaptive immune response is fully activated. Mouse IgM is widely used in research and diagnostic applications, including ELISA, Western blotting, and immunohistochemistry.
