Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.Mice, Inbred Strains: Genetically identical individuals developed from brother and sister matings which have been carried out for twenty or more generations, or by parent x offspring matings carried out with certain restrictions.

Monocyte-mediated antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity: a clinical test of monocyte function. (1/9631)

The lack of a simple, rapid, and quantitative test of the functional activity of the monocyte has hampered studies of the contribution of this cell type to host defense and human disease. This report describes an assay of antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity, which depends exclusively upon the monocyte as the effector cell and therefore provides a convenient test of monocyte function. In this system, mononuclear leukocytes (MNL) obtained by Ficoll-Hypaque separation of whole blood are cytotoxic for 51Cr-labeled human erythrocyte targets coated with anti-blood group antibody. Removal of phagocytic monocytes from the MNL by iron ingestion, followed by exposure to a magnetic field, completely abolishes all cytotoxic activity from the remaining MNL population. Similarly, in severely mono-cytopenic patients with aplastic anemia, cytotoxic effector activity is absent. In normals and less severely monocytopenic aplastic anemia patients, cytotoxicity correlates significantly (p less than 0.001) with monocyte number. Application of this monocyte-mediated antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity assay to the study of patients with the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome has revealed defective monocyte cytotoxic activity in spite of normal monocyte numbers, suggesting that this test may be useful for the assessment of monocyte function in a variety of clinical situations.  (+info)

Features of the immune response to DNA in mice. I. Genetic control. (2/9631)

The genetic control of the immune response to DNA was studied in various strains of mice F1 hybrids and corresponding back-crosses immunized with single stranded DNA complexed to methylated bovine serum albumin. Anti-DNA antibody response was measured by radioimmuno-logical technique. High responder, low responder, and intermediate responder strains were found and the ability to respond to DNA was characterized as a dominant genetic trait which is not linked to the major locus of histocompatibility. Studies in back-crosses suggested that this immune response is under multigenic control. High responder mice produce both anti-double stranded DNA and anti-single stranded DNA 7S and 19S antibodies, while low responder mice produce mainly anti-single stranded DNA 19S antibodies.  (+info)

Identification of the Kv2.1 K+ channel as a major component of the delayed rectifier K+ current in rat hippocampal neurons. (3/9631)

Molecular cloning studies have revealed the existence of a large family of voltage-gated K+ channel genes expressed in mammalian brain. This molecular diversity underlies the vast repertoire of neuronal K+ channels that regulate action potential conduction and neurotransmitter release and that are essential to the control of neuronal excitability. However, the specific contribution of individual K+ channel gene products to these neuronal K+ currents is poorly understood. We have shown previously, using an antibody, "KC, " specific for the Kv2.1 K+ channel alpha-subunit, the high-level expression of Kv2.1 protein in hippocampal neurons in situ and in culture. Here we show that KC is a potent blocker of K+ currents expressed in cells transfected with the Kv2.1 cDNA, but not of currents expressed in cells transfected with other highly related K+ channel alpha-subunit cDNAs. KC also blocks the majority of the slowly inactivating outward current in cultured hippocampal neurons, although antibodies to two other K+ channel alpha-subunits known to be expressed in these cells did not exhibit blocking effects. In all cases the blocking effects of KC were eliminated by previous incubation with a recombinant fusion protein containing the KC antigenic sequence. Together these studies show that Kv2.1, which is expressed at high levels in most mammalian central neurons, is a major contributor to the delayed rectifier K+ current in hippocampal neurons and that the KC antibody is a powerful tool for the elucidation of the role of the Kv2.1 K+ channel in regulating neuronal excitability.  (+info)

Longitudinal evaluation of serovar-specific immunity to Neisseria gonorrhoeae. (4/9631)

The serovars of Neisseria gonorrhoeae that are predominant in a community change over time, a phenomenon that may be due to the development of immunity to repeat infection with the same serovar. This study evaluated the epidemiologic evidence for serovar-specific immunity to N. gonorrhoeae. During a 17-month period in 1992-1994, all clients of a sexually transmitted disease clinic in rural North Carolina underwent genital culture for N. gonorrhoeae. Gonococcal isolates were serotyped according to standard methods. Odds ratios for repeat infection with the same serovar versus any different serovar were calculated on the basis of the distribution of serovars in the community at the time of reinfection. Of 2,838 patients, 608 (21.4%; 427 males and 181 females) were found to be infected with N. gonorrhoeae at the initial visit. Ninety patients (14.8% of the 608) had a total of 112 repeat gonococcal infections. Repeat infection with the same serovar occurred slightly more often than would be expected based on the serovars prevalent in the community at the time of reinfection, though the result was marginally nonsignificant (odds ratio = 1.5, 95% confidence interval 1.0-2.4; p = 0.05). Choosing partners within a sexual network may increase the likelihood of repeat exposure to the same serovar of N. gonorrhoeae. Gonococcal infection did not induce evident immunity to reinfection with the same serovar.  (+info)

Fine specificity of the autoimmune response to the Ro/SSA and La/SSB ribonucleoproteins. (5/9631)

The fine specificity of the Ro and La proteins has been studied by several techniques. In general, there is agreement in a qualitative sense that autoantibodies bind multiple epitopes. For some specific antibody binding, different studies agree quantitatively, for instance, the binding of the carboxyl terminus of 60-kd Ro as described by 2 studies using different techniques and the presence of an epitope within the leucine zipper of 52-kd Ro. In addition, there is general agreement about the location of a prominent epitope at the RRM motif region of the La molecule. On the other hand, the many specific epitope regions of the molecules differ among these studies. These discrepancies are likely the result of using different techniques, sera, and peptide constructs as well as a result of inherent advantages and disadvantages in the individual approaches. Several theories concerning the origin of not only the antibodies, but also the diseases themselves, have been generated from studies of the fine specificity of antibody binding. These include a theory of a primordial foreign antigen for anti-Ro autoimmunity, molecular mimicry with regard to La and CCHB, as well as the association of anti-Ro with HLA. These remain unproven, but are of continuing interest. An explanation for the association of anti-60-kd Ro and anti-52-kd Ro in the sera of patients has sprung from evaluating antibody binding. Data demonstrating multiple epitopes are part of a large body of evidence that strongly suggests an antigen-driven immune response. This means that the autoantigens are directly implicated in initiating and sustaining autoimmunity in their associated diseases. A number of studies have investigated the possibility of differences in the immune response to these antigens in SS and SLE sera. While several differences have been reported, none have been reproduced in a second cohort of patients. Furthermore, none of the reported differences may be sufficiently robust for clinical purposes, such as distinguishing between SS with systemic features and mild SLE, although some might be promising. For instance, in at least 3 groups of SLE patients, no binding of residues spanning amino acids 21-41 of 60-kd Ro has been found. Meanwhile, 1 of those studies found that 41% of sera from patients with primary SS bound the 60-kd Ro peptide 21-41. Perhaps future studies will elaborate a clinical role of such a difference among SS and SLE patients. Study of the epitopes of these autoantigens has, in part, led to a new animal model of anti-Ro and anti-La. Non-autoimmune-prone animals are immunized with proteins or peptides that make up the Ro/La RNP. Such animals develop an autoimmune response to the entire particle, not just the immunogen. This response has been hypothesized to arise from autoreactive B cells. In another, older animal model of disease, the MRL-lpr/lpr mouse, B cells have recently been shown to be required for the generation of abnormal, autoreactive T cells. Thus, there are now powerful data indicating that B cells that produce autoantibodies are directly involved in the pathogenesis of disease above and beyond the formation of immune complexes. Given that the autoreactive B cell is potentially critical to the underlying pathogenesis of disease, then studying these cells will be crucial to further understanding the origin of diseases associated with Ro and La autoimmunity. Hopefully, an increased understanding will eventually lead to improved treatment of patients. Progress in the area of treatment will almost surely be incremental, and studies of the fine specificity of autoantibody binding will be a part of the body of basic knowledge contributing to ultimate advancement. In the future, the animal models will need to be examined with regard to immunology and immunochemistry as well as genetics. The development of these autoantibodies has not been studied extensively because upon presentation to medical care, virtually all patients have a full-  (+info)

Overexpression of human homologs of the bacterial DnaJ chaperone in the synovial tissue of patients with rheumatoid arthritis. (6/9631)

OBJECTIVE: To study the expression of the chaperone family of J proteins in the synovial tissue of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or osteoarthritis. METHODS: Rabbit antibodies specific for a synthetic peptide (pHSJ1: EAYEVLSDKHKREIYD), representing the most conserved part of all J domains thus far identified--among them the Drosophila tumor suppressor Tid56--were used in immunohistochemical analyses of frozen sections of synovial tissue and immunoblotting of protein extracts of adherent synovial cells. IgG specific for Tid56 was also used. RESULTS: Both antisera predominantly and intensely stained synovial lining cells from RA patients; other cells did not stain or stained only faintly. In immunoblots, anti-pHSJ1 specifically detected several bands with molecular weights of >74 kd (type I), 57-64 kd (type II), 41-48 kd (type III), and < or =36 kd (type IV). The strongest band detected in RA adherent synovial cells was the type II band, whereas in a B cell line, a type I band was prominent. CONCLUSION: Several potentially new members of the J family are described. The type II band represents the human homolog of the Drosophila Tid56 protein and is strongly expressed in RA synovial tissue.  (+info)

Autoantibodies to RNA polymerases recognize multiple subunits and demonstrate cross-reactivity with RNA polymerase complexes. (7/9631)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the subunit specificity of autoantibody directed to RNA polymerases (RNAP) I, II, and III, which is one of the major autoantibody responses in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc). METHODS: Thirty-two SSc sera with anti-RNAP antibodies (23 with anti-RNAP I/III, 5 with anti-RNAP I/III and II, and 4 with anti-RNAP II alone) were analyzed by immunoblotting using affinity-purified RNAP and by immunoprecipitation using 35S-labeled cell extracts in which RNAP complexes were dissociated. Antibodies bound to individual RNAP subunits were eluted from preparative immunoblots and were further analyzed by immunoblotting and immunoprecipitation. RESULTS: At least 15 different proteins were bound by antibodies in anti-RNAP-positive SSc sera in various combinations. All 9 sera immunoprecipitating RNAP II and all 28 sera immunoprecipitating RNAP I/III recognized the large subunit proteins of RNAP II and III, respectively. Reactivity to RNAP I large subunits was strongly associated with bright nucleolar staining by indirect immunofluorescence. Affinity-purified antibodies that recognized a 62-kd subunit protein cross-reacted with a 43-kd subunit protein and immunoprecipitated both RNAP I and RNAP III. Antibodies that recognized a 21-kd subunit protein obtained from sera that were positive for anti-RNAP I/III and II antibodies immunoprecipitated both RNAP II and RNAP III. CONCLUSION: Anti-RNAP antibodies recognize multiple subunits of RNAP I, II, and III. Moreover, the results of this study provide the first direct evidence that antibodies that recognize shared subunits of human RNAPs or epitopes present on different human RNAP subunits are responsible for the recognition of multiple RNAPs by SSc sera.  (+info)

Alternating antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody specificity: drug-induced vasculitis in a patient with Wegener's granulomatosis. (8/9631)

We describe a patient who presented with Wegener's granulomatosis associated with antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) directed against proteinase 3 (PR3) with a cytoplasmic immunofluorescence pattern (cANCA), whose ANCA type changed to antimyeloperoxidase antibodies with a perinuclear immunofluorescence pattern (pANCA) when treated with propylthiouracil, and changed back to anti-PR3 antibodies with cANCA after the medication was discontinued. The patient developed flares of vasculitis symptoms associated with rises in either type of ANCA. Tests for antimyeloperoxidase ANCA were repeatedly negative before the drug was started, strongly implicating the drug as the cause of the episode. This case demonstrates that patients with idiopathic ANCA-positive vasculitis may quickly develop a superimposed drug-associated ANCA-positive vasculitis. Iatrogenic vasculitis should be suspected when a patient with idiopathic vasculitis with one type of ANCA develops the other type of ANCA.  (+info)

Polyclonal antibodies are a pool of antibodies originating from different B cells in a host animal that recognize more than one epitope on the same protein or antigen. In contrast, a monoclonal antibody is an antibody originating from a single B cell in a host animal that recognizes only one epitope or binding site on a protein or other antigen. Polyclonal antibodies are usually purified from the serum of an immunized host animal such as a rabbit, chicken or goat. Whereas monoclonal antibodies are usually purified from cell culture media supernatant from the growth of a hybridoma cell line. Monoclonal antibodies are divalent but monospecific. Polyclonal antibodies are also divalent but consist of a pool of antibodies with multiple epitope specificities.. ...

Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), also known as an enzyme immunoassay (EIA), is a biochemical technique used mainly in immunology to detect the presence of an antibody or an antigen in a sample. In simple terms, in ELISA, an unknown amount of antigen is affixed to a surface, and then a specific antibody is applied over the surface so that it can bind to the antigen. This antibody is linked to an enzyme, and in the final step a substance is added that the enzyme can convert to some detectable signal, most commonly a colour change in a chemical substrate.. If an immunogen is injected into an animal, a number of cells will bind that antigen, so the antibody which appears in the bloodstream. The antibodies will have arisen from several clones of cells and are different, so the antibody in bloodstream is a polyclonal antibody. Polyclonal antibody contain different antibodies bind to different antigen. ...
The monoclonal Anti-His antibody facilitates the fast and convenient detection of His-tagged fusion proteins, expressed in either prokaryotic or eukaryotic cells. The conjugated antibody allows fast and convenient analysis of His-tagged fusion proteins. Conjugation of the Anti-His antibody to HRP simplifies Western blot or ELISA analysis as the incubation with secondary antibodies becomes dispensable. Fluorochorme-conjugated Anti-His antibodies enable direct flow cytometry and fluorescent microscopy analyses, while indirect fluorescent labeling of His fusion protein expressing cells is possible with the biotin-conjugated antibody. After incubation the Anti-His-HRP antibody can be directly detected using commercially available chemiluminescent reagents. The monoclonal Anti-His antibody specifically recognizes proteins that contain a polyhistidine tag at their N- and C-terminus. However, the Anti-His-HRP (C-term.) antibody shows higher sensitivity and specificity for C-terminal His-tagged proteins. -

Monoclonal antibodies (Mabs), produced in the laboratory, are derived from the antibodies that the human body produces in the natural course to fight intruders that threaten health. The discovery of these antibodies have radically transformed our understanding of how diseases progress, and how they can be more quickly, accurately, and cheaply diagnosed, and thus substantially expanded the horizons of treatment for more than 50 major ailments. The importance of Mabs can be estimated from the fact that today a majority of the most commercially-successful drugs are Mab-derived, and Mab-drugs are projected to clock sales of US$125 billion annually by 2020.. Mabs in Cancer Treatment Cancer is unarguably one of the fields where monoclonal antibodies have had the strongest impact. The biggest advantage of Mabs is that they are able to avoid the healthy cells while specifically targeting the cancer cells. This translates to the patient experiencing fewer side effects than conventional radiotherapy or ...

Immunoprecipitation and immunobloting with different antibodies - posted in Immunology: I used one rabbit polyclonal antibody and one mouse monoclonal antibody to IP the same protein from cell lysate. Then use these two antibodies to detect the IP product. Both of the two antibodies worked well for immunobloting of the total cell lysate--a clear band at the position of the proteins MW. However, only IP/IB with the same antibody worked. That means, I could use Rabbit Ab to IB the IP pr...

OBJECTIVE: To search for antibodies against neuronal cell surface proteins. METHODS: Using immunoprecipitation from neuronal cultures and tandem mass spectrometry, we identified antibodies against the α1 subunit of the γ-aminobutyric acid A receptor (GABAAR) in a patient whose immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies bound to hippocampal neurons. We searched 2,548 sera for antibodies binding to GABAAR α, β, and γ subunits on live HEK293 cells and identified the class, subclass, and GABAAR subunit specificities of the positive samples. RESULTS: GABAAR-Abs were identified in 40 of 2,046 (2%) referred sera previously found negative for neuronal antibodies, in 5/502 (1%) previously positive for other neuronal surface antibodies, but not in 92 healthy individuals. The antibodies in 40% bound to either the α1 (9/45, 20%) or the γ2 subunits (9/45, 20%) and were of IgG1 (94%) or IgG3 (6%) subclass. The remaining 60% had lower antibody titers (p = 0.0005), which were mainly immunoglobulin M (IgM) (p = 0.0025),

Eleven monoclonal antibodies directed against the subcomponent C1q of the first component of human complement, C1, were prepared and tested for binding to intact C1q and to the collagenous portion, the C1q stalks. All of the monoclonals bound well to the intact C1q. Eight out of the eleven exhibited strong binding to the collagenous stalks, while three bound very weakly, if at all, to the stalks and, thus, were presumed to bind to the pepsin-sensitive region which includes the C1q heads. For one of the latter monoclonals, this was confirmed by electron microscopy. Five of the monoclonals were purified by C1q affinity chromatography. When tested with C1 reassembled from its subunits, two of these purified monoclonal antibodies markedly enhanced the rate of spontaneous activation.
It is possible to produce a humanized antibody without creating a chimeric intermediate. "Direct" creation of a humanized antibody can be accomplished by inserting the appropriate CDR coding segments (responsible for the desired binding properties) into a human antibody "scaffold". As discussed above, this is achieved through recombinant DNA methods using an appropriate vector[3] and expression in mammalian cells. That is, after an antibody is developed to have the desired properties in a mouse (or other non-human), the DNA coding for that antibody can be isolated, cloned into a vector and sequenced. The DNA sequence corresponding to the antibody CDRs can then be determined. Once the precise sequence of the desired CDRs are known, a strategy can be devised for inserting these sequences appropriately into a construct containing the DNA for a human antibody variant.[10][11] The strategy may also employ synthesis of linear DNA fragments based on the reading of CDR sequences.. Alemtuzumab is an ...

Polyclonal, anti-idiotypic, rabbit antibodies have been raised against four murine monoclonal anti-morphine Fab fragments. The antibody preparations, after affinity purification, have been shown to contain an anti-paratypic fraction which reversibly inhibits morphine binding to the anti-morphine antibodies and to cellular opiate receptors. Using some of the unique properties of this system, for the first time cross-reactivities of anti-paratypic antibodies with the monoclonal anti-morphine IgGs have been examined including competition for the same binding sites by a classical opiate agonist/antagonist pair.
Our body has a unique method to fight aggressor foreign micro-organisms when they enter our body.. When any virus, fungus, or bacterium enters our body and starts meddling with our system, our body triggers this mechanism. As a result, our body immune system creates antibodies specific to that foreign substance.. They are basically proteins but all antibodies are not the same.. Bacteria, fungi, or viruses contain character specific proteins called antigens. Antigens are also found on non-living micro-particles such as toxins, snake venoms, pollen, bacterial toxins, chemicals, drugs, and foreign particles. That marks them apart from each other.. After the antibodies are created, the second step is triggered by our defense system. Now there is a fight between the newly generated antibodies and the interfering antigens. This goes on till our body is clear of all antigens or the antigens completely overwhelm the antibodies. But, complete surrender of the antibodies is an ideal condition.. The ...
Antibodies are a vital part of our immune system. These proteins bind to specific antigen proteins on the surface of foreign bodies such as bacteria and viruses in order to neutralize or disarm them. Since each antigen has a different shape, it requires a different antibody to attach to it. By tailoring antibodies to attach to proteins responsible for specific diseases, pharmaceutical companies seek to develop drugs that minimise side-effects caused by antibodies binding to the wrong targets. Researchers at Boehringer have been studying a molecule in an antibody and they found that it was unusually compact as a single crystal. The next step was to obtain structural information of the molecule in solution.. ...
Natural antibodies (NAbs) circulate in normal individuals in the absence of exogenous antigenic stimulation. In the mouse NAbs derive mainly from B-1 cells, a distinct B-cell subset found in the peritoneal and pleural cavities as well as the spleen. In contrast with B-2 cells, B-1 cells are positively selected against self-antigens. The repertoire of B-1 cell derived natural antibodies is characterized by a preferential usage of germline-encoded VH and VL genes, which lack N-region additions and is evolutionarily selected due to their importance for organisms survival and homeostasis. The natural antibody population rapidly recognizes and protects against pathogens that have not been encountered previously. On the other hand NAbs cross-react with several self-antigens and besides their role as first line defense against pathogens, it has been demonstrated they perform important
An antigen is a substance which is used to generate the production of antibodies. In the case of this PolyExpressTM package, this is either a native protein or peptide sequence. The origin of your target antigen is the type of organism that the protein or peptide sequence to be used as an antigen originally came from. An accession number is a unique identification given to a biological polymer sequence and may be found in protein databases such as UniProt. Peptides created through GenScripts OptimumAntigen™ design program have many advantages over full proteins when it comes to antibody production. Our OptimumAntigen™ Design Tool combines the industrys most advanced algorithms with GenScripts time-tested expertise. Each peptide antigen is measured against several protein databases to confirm the desired antibody and epitope specificity. We guarantee a polyclonal antibody with ELISA titer of 1:32,000 or better for any host with the aid of our antigen design tool and unique antibody ...
Invaluable assistance in this task was provided by a monoclonal antibody, a special protein that identifies cell structures with a high degree of specificity. The antibody in question, which is known as AD5-10, binds specifically to the receptors that usually receive and transmit the TRAIL signal. In addition to studies, in which TRAIL itself is used as a therapeutic agent, so-called monoclonal antibodies are also being researched which, like AD5-10, bind to the TRAIL receptor. Yet they can only trigger a suicide signal if there is no resistance to TRAIL. AD5-10 is special, however, because, although it binds to the TRAIL receptor like the other monoclonal antibodies, it does not bind at the precise location where the TRAIL itself docks. Therefore, AD5-10 can arise bound to the receptor along with TRAIL, reports Prof. Krainer. Prof. Krainers team has proposed an interesting hypothesis that takes into account the unique binding site of AD5-10 to the receptor. It is possible that, due its ...

Purpose: : BVES is a transmembrane protein that regulates tight junction (TJ) and adherens junction (AJ) formation. Furthermore, disruption of BVES level induces phenotypic changes in human corneal epithelial (HCE) cells that are associated with increased wound healing. These observations led us to postulate that antibodies blocking BVES will induce increased corneal healing. Methods: : Rabbit polyclonal antibodies (Y666) against BVES extracellular region (aa 3-16) were generated. Cultured HCE cells and organ cultured mouse eyes were employed to determine the effects of these antibodies on cell adhesion (immunofluorescent staining), RhoA activation (Elisa assay), and mouse model corneal wound healing. Results: : The immunofluorescent staining on confluent HCE cells for BVES with Y666 reveals a cell membrane pattern of distribution, similar to staining with intracellular domain BVES antibodies (846). Furthermore, Y666 is capable of binding to BVES in live HCE cells. Following antibody treatment ...

Ladd, President of American Autoimmune Related Illnesses Association, Inc. . Regarding to AARDA, in healthy people, when a foreign invader, like a bacteria or virus, enters the body, the immune system produces antibodies to attack those foreign substances. In people with autoimmunity, the immune system mistakenly recognizes the bodys personal healthy organs and tissues as international invaders and produces antibodies to attack them. These auto-antibodies - or antibodies created against the self - - then trigger disease. The condition that results is dependent upon which cells and/or organs the antibodies are attacking. Some 50 million Americans live and cope with autoimmune disease , 75 % of whom are females.

BACKGROUND: Negatively-charged polyhedral boron clusters can be easily halogenated with highly stable boron-halogen bonds and are promising in radionuclide diagnostics and cancer therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The radio-iodination conditions for the closo-dodecaborate anion and for the conjugation of its labeled isothiocyanatobenzylammonio derivative to the monoclonal antibody (mAb) were optimized. RESULTS: The labeling yield was about 90% and the overall conjugation yield was 55-60%. The in vitro stability of the radio-iodinated mAb was good under physiological and non-physiological conditions. The immunoreactivity of the labeled mAb (SK-BR-3 cells) was retained in the one-pot two-step labeling. CONCLUSION: Negatively-charged polyhedral boron clusters can be used for indirect radio-iodination of mAbs.. ...

Monoclonal antibodies are a unique class of biological agents that have been developed for autoimmune disease, antitumor and antiplatelet therapy to name a few. Antibodies produced by the body in response to an infection are polyclonal antibodies, meaning the antibodies produced are not identical. Monoclonal antibodies are immunoglobulins that are identical and bind to the same antigenic surface marker, thus the term targeted therapy. The naming of monoclonal antibodies is based on the target of the antibody (e.g. tumor, viral) and the source from which the antibody was produced (e.g. murine, human), followed by the "mab" suffix. While monoclonal antibodies have a wide therapeutic benefit, they have limitations including inability to cross the blood brain barrier and cost.. This presentation will review the history, types and immunogenicity of each type of monoclonal antibody. The nurse will understand the naming nomenclature of monoclonal antibodies and will be able to recognize the action of ...

Creative Biolabs is a leader in the field of single domain antibody. Based on its well-known phage display technology, its scientists are specialized in the production and discovery of specific single domain antibodies.. As single domain antibodies were first engineered from the VHH domain of heavy-chain antibody identified in camelids, they are sometimes referred to as camelid antibodies. Single-domain camelids antibodies have been shown to be just as specific as a regular antibody, and in some cases they are more robust. Moreover, they can be easily isolated using the same phage panning procedure used for traditional antibodies, allowing them to be cultured in vitro in large concentrations.. Single domain antibodies can recognize novel epitopes that regular size antibodies cannot. They have outstanding penetrability which is able to cross the blood-brain barrier. They also have great potential in downstream engineering and can be expressed in both eukaryotic and prokaryotic ...
Selective suppression of IgE antibody response was demonstrated. Preadministration of DNP-coupled mycobacterium (DNP-Tbc) inhibited the formation of anti-DNP IgE antibody induced by DNP-OA without any suppressive effect on anti-DNP IgG antibody response. Secondary anti-DNP IgE antibody response by DNP-OA was also significantly depressed by the preadministration of DNP-Tbc. Anti-OA IgE antibody response induced by DNP-OA was also depressed by DNP-Tbc, whereas anti-OA IgE antibody response induced by PAB-OA was not affected by the preadministration of DNP-Tbc. Preimmunization with DNP-MGG induced much higher anti-DNP IgG antibody response than DNP-Tbc, but DNP-MGG did not suppress the induction of anti-DNP IgE antibody. The transfer of DNP-Tbc-primed spleen cells into normal mice depressed anti-DNP IgE antibody response. B cell-depleted cell populations also showed a comparable inhibitory effect to that of unfractionated DNP-Tbc primed cells. In the adoptive cell transfer experiment, ...
Based on years of experience in phage display technology, Creative Biolabs now is able to provide services for the construction and screening of immune antibody library.. With years of research and development in the past decades, phage display has been a powerful technology to display millions or even billions of different peptides or proteins. It is now a common choice for the studies of protein-protein, protein-peptide and protein-DNA interactions. Among all the applications of phage display technology, one of the most successful ones is the isolation of monoclonal antibodies utilizing large capacity phage antibody libraries.. Thanks to the rapid development of this technology, it has become a reliable tool for the production of monoclonal antibody with high specificity and affinity. "Compared with conventional hybridoma technology, the generation of immune antibody libraries is not limited by the requirement of fusion partners. This expands the possibility to develop monoclonal antibodies ...
Ribosome display was applied in vitro to select single-chain variable fragment (scFv) antibody specific for digoxin from a human non-immune naive scFv library. A cell-free system was used to produce stable antibody-ribosome-mRNA (ARM) complexes to provide the linkage of genotype and phenotype, allowing simultaneous selection of a desired antibody together with its encoding mRNA. The mRNA was then recovered and amplified as DNA by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Repeating the display cycle enriched the selected molecules, enabling rare species to be isolated. In this study, digoxin-binding segments were selected over four cycles of ARM display and the selected DNA was cloned and expressed as a single-chain variable fragment antibody (the best scFv, A3) in Escherichia coli. The affinity (equilibrium dissociation constant Kd) of digoxin was 8.3 × 10⁻⁸ M for A3, which validated construction of the naïve library and the power of ribosome display lending to the ...
Antibodies are applied in both basic research and diagnostics, and represent an increasingly important class of therapeutics. Monoclonal antibodies is the largest and fastest growing class of protein pharmaceuticals [1]. In the discovery and development of these antibodies, antibody fragments such as the antigen binding fragment (Fab), the single-chain variable fragment (scFv), and the single variable domains (VH and VL, collectively sdAb) are often employed [2]. The present recombinant antibody discovery platforms, such as ribosome and phage display [3], enable easy screening and selection of antibody fragments against virtually any antigen [4]. Based on the initial screening or selection, a number of candidate antibodies are obtained [3]. Often, these recombinant antibody candidates can be expressed in E. coli. However, although the field of recombinant protein expression in E. coli is developed and expanded [5, 6], the codon usage and folding dynamics of some recombinant antibody clones are ...

  • Understanding the specificities that mediate broad neutralization will provide insight into which epitopes should be targeted for immunogen design and aid in the isolation of broadly neutralizing monoclonal antibodies from these donors. (nih.gov)
  • However, the IDDM epitopes have been difficult to further define because the antibodies do not bind GAD protein fragments or synthetic peptides. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Identification of epitopes targeted by IDDM sera may allow one to distinguish between GAD antibody-positive individuals at high and low risk of developing IDDM and to determine if differences in the autoimmune repertoire directed at GAD are present. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Although the development of an immunogen that elicits such antibodies remains elusive, a proportion of HIV-1 infected individuals evolve broadly neutralizing serum responses over time, demonstrating that the human immune system can recognize and generate NAbs to conserved epitopes on the virus. (nih.gov)
  • In approximately half of the donors, key N-linked glycans were critical for expression of the epitopes recognized by the bNAb specificities in the sera. (nih.gov)
  • The sera also failed to neutralize chimeric simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) and HIV-2 viruses displaying highly conserved gp41-neutralizing epitopes, suggesting that antibodies directed against these epitopes likely do not account for the broad neutralizing activity observed. (asm.org)
  • Serum antibodies from these human vaccine recipients were also found to be preferentially directed to linear epitopes within gp120 that are poorly exposed on native gp120. (asm.org)
  • High specificity is the pre-requisite for any antibody used in diagnostic and therapeutic applications. (origene.com)
  • Drugs targeting the epigenetic machinery are being tested in oncology clinics now, and a better understanding of what the antibodies are recognizing will help researchers define more precisely how epigenetics works and ultimately lead to better, stronger conclusions that can make a difference for drug discovery and future therapeutic interventions. (healthcanal.com)
  • Custom antibody development and commercial partnerships to advance your diagnostic and therapeutic discovery. (abcam.com)
  • Whether managing a research program, a reagent company R&D lab or a diagnostic/therapeutic antibody initiative, you will benefit from learning more about an antibody BEFORE you use it (or sell it). (cdi-lab.com)
  • Antibodies are used routinely in various analytical, diagnostic, and therapeutic applications, including cell and protein sorting ( 1 ), in vitro assays ( 2 ), in vivo imaging ( 3 ), and targeted delivery of therapeutics for the treatment of various diseases, including cancer ( 4 ), arthritis ( 5 ), and allergies ( 6 ). (pnas.org)
  • Although the benefits of antibodies in delivering therapeutic carriers to tissues have long been recognized, the effect of carriers themselves on antibody function has been relatively less studied. (pnas.org)
  • We find that the GAD binding present in most IDDM sera ( n = 11 of 12) is composed of two distinct GAD antibody specificities that target different conformation-dependent regions of the GAD 65 protein, one that is located between amino acids 240 and 435 (termed IDDM-E1) and one that is located between amino acids 451 and 570 (termed IDDM-E2). (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Here, we have used a number of new and established technologies to map the bNAb specificities in the sera of 19 donors who exhibit among the most potent cross-clade serum neutralizing activities observed to date. (nih.gov)
  • To better understand the requirements for cross-neutralization of HIV-1, we have characterized the neutralizing antibody specificities present in the sera of three asymptomatic individuals exhibiting broad neutralization. (asm.org)
  • Overall, the data suggest that broad neutralization results from more than one specificity in the sera but that the number of these specificities is likely small. (asm.org)
  • Analysis of 19 selected RA sera revealed that autoantibodies were generally associated with specific antibodies to some species of heterologous type I1 collagen. (docme.ru)
  • Additionally, those immune sera with the highest oligomeric gp160 antibody binding titers had neutralizing activity against some primary HIV-1 isolates, using phytohemagglutinin-stimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cell targets. (asm.org)
  • There's been a real awakening in the biological community that we need better ways to know if the antibodies are recognizing what they're intended to recognize. (healthcanal.com)
  • In the same study, antibodies 2F5 and 4E10, which recognize adjacent sites on the highly conserved membrane proximal external region (MPER) of gp41 ( 55 , 86 ), showed an even greater neutralization breadth, neutralizing 67% and 100%, respectively, of the cross-clade virus panel. (asm.org)
  • The anti-C could be a passive antibody derived from the IV RhIG or a new alloantibody stimulated by prior transfusion. (traqprogram.ca)
  • Alloantibody specificities differed from those previously described, especially due to the significantly higher frequency of anti-S. Although alloimmunization was not associated with frequency of vasoocclusive episodes, a higher percentage of alloimmunized patients had chronic pain, as defined by daily use of short-acting narcotics (p = 0.006), long-acting narcotics (p = 0.013), or both (p = 0.03). (duke.edu)
  • Second, susceptible strains of rodents (8-12) and nonhuman primates (1315) immunized with type I1 collagen produce high titers of autoreactive antibodies and develop an erosive polyarthritis that shares phenotypic features with RA. (docme.ru)
  • Current human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) envelope vaccine candidates elicit high antibody binding titers with neutralizing activity against T-cell line-adapted but not primary HIV-1 isolates. (asm.org)
  • However, the enormous sequence diversity of HIV-1 presents a major complication, in that a globally effective vaccine must elicit broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs), i.e., those capable of neutralizing a wide range of primary isolates. (asm.org)
  • Antibody responses to conserved regions of the functional envelope spike have been difficult to elicit, due at least in part to the restricted accessibility of these regions. (asm.org)
  • Induction of an antibody response preferentially reactive with natively folded gp120/gp160 was dependent on the tertiary structure of the HIV-1 envelope immunogen as well as its adjuvant formulation, route of administration, and number of immunizations administered. (asm.org)
  • This antibody, BB7.2, can be used as an HLA-A2 typing reagent with little modification of current typing techniques. (nih.gov)
  • In the in situ method, protein synthesis is carried out on a protein array surface that is pre-coated with a protein-capturing reagent or antibody. (wikipedia.org)
  • This antibody reacts with most of macrophages in lymphoreticular organs and in many other organs and tissues. (osu.edu)
  • Neglecting this important validation step has resulted in the proliferation of nonspecific, poorly validated antibodies, thus contributing to a major problem in biomedicine: the reproducibility crisis. (ptglab.com)
  • Abcam has incorporated knockout based validation as a standard level of validation for its antibody products. (abcam.com)
  • When you see the knockout validated seal, you can trust that the antibody has not only been validated in the recommended applications and species, but its specificity has been confirmed through our in-house knockout validation approach. (abcam.com)
  • Abcam knockout validates its antibodies using the extensive library of knockout cell lines available from Horizon Discovery. (abcam.com)
  • This particular antibody labels high and low molecular weight keratins in many epithelia, including keratinized and corneal epidermis, stratified squamous epithelia of internal organs, stratified epithelia, hyperproliferative keratinocytes, and simple epithelia. (osu.edu)
  • This antibody reacts specifically with human CD45 and is useful for identifying human leukocytes transplanted into immunodeficient mice. (osu.edu)
  • In efforts to gain further insight on the potential role of these lectin-like molecules, our laboratory generated monoclonal antibodies (mAb) against the human analogs of rhesus macaque CD200, CD200R and Mincle, since the rhesus macaques are accepted as the most reliable animal model to study human HIV infection. (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • Antibodies with specificity to native gp120 and neutralization activity against primary human immunodeficiency virus type 1 isolates elicited by immunization with oligomeric gp160. (asm.org)
  • Other clinically significant antibodies have been excluded based on at least one negative with a cell from a homozygous donor. (traqprogram.ca)
  • The results suggest that broad and potent serum neutralization arises in most donors through a limited number of specificities (1-2 per donor). (nih.gov)
  • These results open unique opportunities for particulate forms of antibodies in therapeutics and diagnostics. (pnas.org)
  • In addition to exhibiting higher binding and internalization, trastuzumab-coated rods also exhibited greater inhibition of BT-474 breast cancer cell growth in vitro to a level that could not be attained by soluble forms of the antibody. (pnas.org)
  • Although most individuals with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) have autoantibodies to glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD), antibodies to GAD are also present in some individuals with a low risk of developing diabetes. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • The antibody 2G12, which has a unique dimeric domain-exchanged structure that recognizes a carbohydrate cluster on the so-called silent face of gp120 ( 16 , 67 , 69 , 76 ) also neutralized over 40% of the 90-virus panel. (asm.org)
  • With their specificity and sensitivity, these tools can help to easily identify the protein of interest at various expression levels. (abcam.com)
  • This antibody does not react with dendritic cell population, such as epidermal Langerhans cells, interdigitating cells in the paracortex of lymph nodes, nor follicular dendritic cells. (osu.edu)
  • This brings up the issue of how antibodies are typically used, since they can be collected directly from the serum or by isolating the B cell(s) that is producing the antibody of interest. (pacificimmunology.com)
  • This surprising interplay between particle shape and antibodies originates from the unique role of shape in determining binding and unbinding of particles to cell surface. (pnas.org)
  • Alloimmunization in sickle cell disease: changing antibody specificities and association with chronic pain and decreased survival. (duke.edu)
  • Unreliable antibodies have led to numerous instances of false findings, failed experiments, and wasted money and samples. (healthcanal.com)
  • Here, we show that presentation of antibodies on the surface of nonspherical particles enhances antibody specificity as well as avidity toward their targets. (pnas.org)
  • In fact, it has been speculated that the largest driver of poor reproducibility in published biomedical literature is antibody- driven. (avmbiomed.com)
  • Enter the Histone Antibody Specificity Database (www.histoneantibodies.com), a newly launched online portal that lets scientists find the right antibodies for their research with a much higher degree of confidence than ever before. (healthcanal.com)
