BALB/c mice were immunized with crude cell surface proteins of Listeria monocytogenes V7. Approximately 1,680 hybridomas were generated after two fusions, and the monoclone C11E9 was selected and used for further characterization. The monoclonal antibody (MAb) produced by C11E9 was immunoglobulin subclass G2b with kappa light chains. Dot and colony blot(More)
The metabolism of natural and synthetic estrogens is governed primarily by hydroxylations, leading to polyhydroxylated derivatives of the steroid molecule. In mammals aromatic hydroxylation is most prominent quantitatively. The 2- and 4-hydroxyestrogens (catecholestrogens) formed are secreted not only in high amounts in urine but are also present in(More)
The sensitizing effect of oestrogens on GnRH-stimulated LH release was evaluated in pituitary cells from adult female rats, cultured for 2 days in the presence of 10(-13) to 10(-6) M concentrations of oestradiol and selected A- and D-ring modified oestrogens. With almost all steroids tested, bell-shaped dose-response curves with comparable LH-maxima but(More)
Portions of pregnancy and midcycle urines were submitted to hot acid hydrolysis, extracted with benzene/ethyl acetate and the extracts washed with ascorbic acid buffer. From the remaining organic phase the catecholestrogens were removed with borate buffer and further purified on Sephadex LH-20 columns. After derivatisation 4-hydroxyestrone was separated(More)
2-Methyloestradiol, 4-hydroxy-2-methyloestradiol and 4-methyloestradiol were synthesized and infused sc into long-term ovariectomized rats by means of osmotic minipumps. The effects on uterine growth and gonadotrophin release were tested and compared to oestradiol or vehicle alone. 2-Methyloestradiol and 4-hydroxy-2-methyloestradiol, steroids in which the(More)

Under the protection of ascorbic acid a 4-hydroxyoestrone-bovine serum albumin conjugate was prepared containing intact 4-hydroxyoestrone as determined by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Using this antigen, antibodies with high affinity and specificity for 4-hydroxyoestrone were raised in rabbits. An assay procedure for the determination of(More)
4-Hydroxyestrone 4-methyl ether (4-OHE1 4-Me) was converted to its 17-(O-carboxymethyl)oxime and then coupled to bovine serum albumin. The injection of this steroid-protein conjugate into rabbits induced the formation of antibodies with high specificity and affinity for 4-OHE1 4-Me. With this antiserum a radioimmunoassay was developed which allowed the(More)
