Induction of neutralizing antibody in mice against poliovirus type II with monoclonal anti-idiotypic antibody.
Journal of Immunology , Volume 134 - Issue 2 p. 1225- 1229
Syngeneic monoclonal anti-idiotope antibody Ab2,2-17C3SCC was raised against an idiotope on a protective monoclonal antibody with specificity for poliovirus type II. Ab2,2-17C3SCC detects a paratope-related interspecies IdX. Ab2,2-17C3SCC purified from supernatant fluids of hybridoma cells by protein A-Sepharose was injected into 4- to 6-wk-old BALB/c mice. The sera of the mice were screened for the expression of antibodies bearing the corresponding idiotope. Immunization of mice with Ab2,2-17C3SCC induced antibodies of complementary specificity. Furthermore, micro VN tests suggest that Ab2,2-17C3SCC can substitute for antigen in the induction of anti-polio neutralizing antibodies, and hence can function as a monoclonal anti-idiotypic vaccine.
