Generation of monoclonal antibodies to Macaca mulatta (rhesus) IgA

Academic Article


  • One IgG1 and five IgM murine monoclonal antibodies (mAb) specific for rhesus (Rh) IgA were generated. These mAbs bound to Rh IgA but not IgG or IgM when tested by enzyme‐linked immunosorbent assay. Immunoblotting revealed that the mAbs reacted with the alpha heavy chain of Rh but not human IgA. The IgG1 anti‐Rh IgA mAb detected IgA‐producing cells in sections of monkey gut examined by immunofluorescent staining. These mAbs should be useful for characterizing IgA responses in the Rh monkey. 1995 Munksgaard
