A monoclonal antibody from infected mice to a Schistosoma mansoni egg proteinase

A monoclonal antibody from infected mice to a Schistosoma mansoni egg proteinase

Journal of Immunology 130(1): 1-3

A number of monoclonal antibodies were obtained by fusion of SP2/0 myeloma cells and spleen lymphocytes from mice infected with Schistosoma mansoni. These antibodies were tested for their ability to inhibit acidic, thiol-dependent proteinases previously isolated from Schistosoma mansoni eggs and adult worms. One of the monoclonal antibodies isolated inhibits egg proteinase activity measured in vitro with the use of a low m.w. synthetic substrate. This antibody, which is an IgG1 isotype, does not appreciably inhibit an acidic, thiol-dependent proteinase obtained from the adult stage of Schistosoma mansoni. Immunocytochemical methods with the monoclonal antibody have been used to localize the egg proteinase within a set of "penetration" glands in the unhatched miracidium.
