Abstract

Polyvalent antisera obtained after immunization of rabbits with crystallins from whole human lens, were further purified by elution of the bound antibody from selected polypeptide bands on a Western blot. These polypeptide bands were either crystallin polypeptides, or their proteolytic fragments. The resulting eluted antisera were monospecific for polypeptides containing immunologic determinants directed towards alpha, beta or gamma crystallins, and could be used in Western blot analysis to characterize their involvement in covalent aggregation occurring in the aging human lens.
