Use of inactive beta-D-galactosidase for elimination of interference by anti-beta-D-galactosidase antibodies in immune complex transfer enzyme immunoassay for anti-thyroglobulin IgG in serum using beta-D-galactosidase from Escherichia coli as label



Use of inactive beta-D-galactosidase for elimination of interference by anti-beta-D-galactosidase antibodies in immune complex transfer enzyme immunoassay for anti-thyroglobulin IgG in serum using beta-D-galactosidase from Escherichia coli as label



Journal of Clinical Laboratory Analysis 5(3): 197-205



A novel enzyme immunoassay (immune complex transfer enzyme immunoassay) for anti-thyroglobulin IgG using beta-D-galactosidase from Escherichia coli as label was reported previously. This immunoassay was highly sensitive in demonstrating anti-thyroglobulin IgG not only in all patients with Graves' disease and chronic thyroiditis but also in a large proportion of healthy subjects. However, the detection of anti-thyroglobulin IgG at low levels in some serum samples was difficult, probably due to the presence of anti-beta-D-galactosidase antibodies. In the present study, the use of inactive beta-D-galactosidase was tested for elimination of interference by anti-beta-D-galactosidase antibodies. Preincubation of serum samples with excess of inactive beta-D-galactosidase resulted in sufficiently low backgrounds to detect low levels of anti-thyroglobulin IgG with little effect on the dose-response of anti-thyroglobulin IgG. As a result, it was revealed that anti-thyroglobulin IgG was present in almost all healthy subjects as well as all patients with Graves' disease and chronic thyroiditis.
