REAGENTS/MATERIAL: Two novel antibodies 1-57
and 2-48 against N-terminal
truncated Ab starting with pyroglutamate (pGlu, pE) were
generated by Synaptic Systems (Goettingen, Germany) http://www.sysy.com/products/pyro-glu/index.php by
immunizing three Balb/c mice with a KLH-coupled pyroglutamate-
Abeta-peptide with the peptide pEFRHD-C.
After preparation of the lymph nodes, cells were fused with
the myeloma cell line P3-963-Ag8. The hybridoma
supernatants of mixed clones were screened by ELISA and
subcloned. The monoclonal antibodies 1-57 (IgG2b) and
2-48 (IgG1) were selected and further characterized for
their specificity and affinity.
Other monoclonal anti-Ab antibodies used for comparison are 4G8 (Ab epitope 17-24; Covance),
HJ5.1 (mouse monoclonal Ab 13-28, courtesy of Hong Jiang and David Holtzman)
and Ab[N] (IBL, Hamburg, Germany).
