Unlike monoclonal antibodies which come from a single cell lineage and have specificity and affinity towards a unique epitope, Polyclonal antibodies are a group of antibodies recognizing different portions of one defined target secreted by a variety of B cell lineages having different specificities and epitope affinities. Therefore, the polyclonal serum will contain a heterogeneous complex mixture of antibodies displaying different affinity and are mainly of IgG subclass.
To direct the production of a polyclonal antibody towards a unique epitope, peptides are used as antigens, especially for protein families of high homology. The numerous advantages in producing polyclonal antibodies are as follows:
