Anti-idiotypic Antibodies against Bovine Growth Hormone
N. K. Verma, R. Sodhi, Y. S. Rajput
Abstract
Anti-antibodies against three mouse monoclonal antibodies viz. IIB5D6, VIA6E8 and VIC1F9 (specific to bovine growth hormone) in rabbits have been generated and characterized. Ammonium sulfate fractionated and affinity-purified monoclonal antibodies were used for producing anti-antibodies. The generated anti-antibodies were against common as well as uncommon antigenic determinants present in mouse monoclonal antibodies. The raised anti-antibodies replaced [ I125 ]bGH bound to goat liver microsomes indicating production of anti-idiotypic antibodies against bovine growth hormone. These antibodies can have profound implications in vivo in lactating bovines for enhancing milk yield.
