A murine hybridoma cell line which secretes a monoclonal IgA antibody, directed against the LPS antigen of Vibrio cholerae, was grown in either a continuous stirred tank reactor, a fluidised bed reactor or a hollow fibre reactor. Different methods were used for the structural characterisation of the IgA alpha chains. A classical approach consisted of Edman(More)
Pig breeders have successfully selected for higher litter size, reduced backfat and improved growth rate (Hermesch, 2006). These outcomes imply that modern sows have higher nutrient demands in comparison to sows of 20 years ago. For example, genetic improvement of litter size has been 0.10 to 0.20 piglets per year in maternal lines. This implies that sows(More)
We have shown that human secretory component (SC) binds in vitro to different samples of human and murine dimeric immunoglobulin A (IgA). The binding ratio in the IgA/SC complex is 1:1. IgA which is stably bound to SC is separated from unreacted IgA by anion exchange chromatography. A part of IgA/SC complexes formed in vitro is unstable to this elution; the(More)
