Properties and applications of new monoclonal antibodies raised against calf DNA polymerase alpha.

Abstract:

A panel of 12 hybridoma cell lines secreting monoclonal antibodies against alpha-polymerase were prepared by fusion of mouse myeloma cells and spleen cells of a rat immunized with homogeneous calf thymus alpha-polymerase. Hybridomas were selected and cloned on the basis of immunobinding to pure alpha-polymerase in solid phase radioimmunoassay. Antibodies secreted by these cells eventually were purified in milligram quantities from ascites fluids. These antibodies, all of the rat immunoglobulin M class, cross-reacted with alpha-polymerases from calf and monkey cells as revealed by immunobinding in radioimmunoassay and by immunoprecipitation of DNA polymerase activity. The antibodies were not capable of neutralizing the enzyme activity. With the methods described these antibodies may be used to immunoprecipitate alpha-polymerase from crude extracts of mammalian cells and to measure levels of the enzyme protein.
