Abstract

Hybrid cell lines producing monoclonal antibodies against human prostatic acid phosphatase (E. C. 3.1.3.2) were prepared by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells with the spleen cells of BALB/c mice and Lewis rats immunized with prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP). Approximately 14% of the hybrid cell microcultures which produced specific antibodies were cloned, and 6 eventually yielded stable cell lines. The monoclonal antibodies produced by these 6 hybridomas were characterized for their isotypes, isoelectric points, concentrations and affinities. The specificity of these monoclonal antibodies was further investigated by radioimmunoassay and immunohistochemical methods. All of the 6 monoclonal antibodies exhibited strict specificity for prostatic acid phosphatase.
