Monoclonal antibody A2B5, which detects cell surface antigens, binds to ganglioside GT3 (II3 (NeuAc)3LacCer) and to its 9-O-acetylated derivative.
The monoclonal antibody A2B5 recognizes antigens at the surface of neuronal and glial cells but also at the surface of thymus epithelia and pancreatic islet cells. Although these antigens have beenExpand

Protection against lethal viral infection by vaccination with nonimmunodominant peptides.
CTL response of H-2b mice to influenza PR8 virus is directed against the nucleoprotein (NP)-derived immunodominant 366-374 (NP366PR8) peptide presented by the Db molecule. However, NP has threeExpand
