We have determined the nucleotide (nt) sequences encoding the heavy (H)- and light (L)-chains of the Fab fragment of a murine monoclonal antibody, MabA34 (γl, κ), which is specific for human plasma apolipoprotein A-I of high-density lipoproteins. The variable (V) regions of the H- and L-chains were revealed to be members of mouse I-I-chain subgroup II(A) and κ L-chain subgroup II, respectively. A few unusual amino acids in the V region of the H-chain, and nt residues probably introduced by somatic mutations from germline genes were also identified.
