Anti-poly-γ-D-glutamic acid (PGA) [8B10] Antibody

This mouse IgG1 monoclonal antibody recognizes poly-γ-D-glutamic acid (PGA) of B. anthracis and B. licheniformis.


  • Binds to poly-γ-D-glutamic acid (PGA) from B. anthracis and B. licheniformis
  • Suitable for ELISA, Western Blot, and lateral flow immunoassay applications

Inhalational anthrax is a serious biothreat. Effective antibiotic treatment of inhalational anthrax requires early diagnosis; the further the disease has progressed, the less the likelihood for cure. Current means for diagnosis such as blood culture require several days to a result and require advanced laboratory infrastructure. An alternative approach to diagnosis is detection of a Bacillus anthracis antigen poly-γ-D-glutamic acid (PGA), the capsular antigen of B. anthracis, that is shed into blood and can be detected by rapid immunoassay.
