Participants of the Second International Workshop (WS) on human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) of the International Society of Oncology and Biomarkers Tissue Differentiation 7 (ISOBM TD-7) have characterized in detail a panel of 69 antibodies (Abs) directed against hCG and hCG-related variants that were submitted by eight companies and research groups.(More)
A factor which is responsible for the growth inhibitory properties of certain mouse sera and related to NK-activity, has been studied. The factor was isolated from hybrid B6D2F1 (C57Bl/6 x DBA/2) serum, which is histo-compatible with the mouse tumour (B16 melanoma) used and has high NK-activity. Growth inhibitory activity was measured in an in vitro assay.(More)
Reaction of alpha-mannosidase (alpha-D-mannoside mannohydrolase, EC from Phaseolus vulgaris with N-bromosuccinimide or 2-hydroxy-5-nitrobenzyl bromide- resulted in loss of enzyme activity. Spectral absorption and fluorescence studies, as well as amino acid analysis, suggested that only tryptophan residues had been modified. No change in(More)
Both alpha-mannosidases I and II from Phaseolus vulgaris have molecular weights about 210000-220000 and contain approximately 2 mol zinc/mol protein. alpha-Mannosidase I seems to consist of more glutamic acid than alpha-mannosidase II, while the latter is richer in serine. They are glycoproteins: alpha-mannosidase I contains 8.3% carbohydrate by weight(More)
Fc5mu fragments were purified from a trypsin digest of native IgM by gel filtration and isoelectric focusing. Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of Fc5mu fragments in sodium dodecyl sulphate disclosed a major and a minor band with molecules of 320,000 and 285,000 daltons, respectively. The mu chain fragments showed a molecular weight of 34,500. After(More)
When the pKm of alpha-mannosidase was determined at different pH values, the results indicated that ionizable groups with pK values of approx. 3.8 and 5.7 could be essential. Modification with carbodiimide or Woodward's Reagent K abolished the enzyme activity. The substrate analogue, alpha-methyl-D-mannoside, protected the enzyme against inactivation.(More)
Monocional antibodies were raised against neuron-specific enolase, yy-enolase, and used in an immunoradiometnc assay (IRMA), with mono-disperse magnetizable particles as the solid phase. The assay's sensitivity was 0.4 pg/L and the interassay coefficient of variation was <5% in the working range from 0.4 to 170 p/L. Compared with our radioimmu-noassay based(More)
