Monoclonal antibody specific for chicken DNA polymerase alpha associated with DNA primase.

Abstract:

Four monoclonal antibodies against chicken DNA polymerase alpha were obtained from mouse hybridomas (see ref. 1). Two of them, 4-2D and 4-8H, recognized different epitopes of the DNA polymerase alpha-DNA primase complex as determined by a competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Antibody 4-8H partially (about 30%) neutralized the combined activity of primase-DNA polymerase alpha as well as the DNA polymerase alpha activity. In contrast, antibody 4-2D did not neutralize DNA polymerase alpha activity, but neutralized the primase-DNA polymerase alpha activity extensively (up to 80%). Furthermore, although an immunoaffinity column made with 4-8H antibody retained virtually all of the DNA polymerase alpha with and without associated primase, a column made with 4-2D antibody did not bind DNA polymerase alpha without the primase, but retained the enzyme associated with the primase. These results indicate that 4-8H monoclonal antibody is specific for DNA polymerase alpha and 4-2D monoclonal antibody is specific for the primase or a special structure present in the primase-DNA polymerase alpha complex.
