In recent years the production of antibodies (Abs) in laboratory animals has become an essential part of many research projects. Investigators preparing to produce antibodies are confronted with a number of complex choices, some of which may be critical for success. The goal is to obtain high-titer, high-affinity antisera in a manner consistent with the(More)
Southern analysis has previously shown that the rabbit genome contains multiple genes coding for the constant regions of IgA heavy chains. In the present study, clones containing these C alpha genes have been isolated from cosmid and phage libraries. Restriction mapping and Southern analysis of the clones identified 13 non-allelic C alpha genes; 11 of the(More)
A third allotype of rabbit secretory component has been identified. The allotype previously referred to as t62 by our laboratory can now be subdivided into two allotypes, t62 and t63, with alloantisera capable of discriminating between the two. Results of family studies are consistent with a three allele system (t61, t62 and t63) at the t-locus. By SDS(More)
The ability of phenolic glycolipid I (PhenGL-I) of Mycobacterium leprae to stimulate in vitro lymphocyte proliferation (LP) was tested in cultures of peripheral blood cells from 42 patients with leprosy in Chicago and Thailand, 9 individuals with household contact in Thailand, and 10 unexposed North American controls. Only 10 responders (24%) were found(More)
High-throughput approaches for gene cloning and expression require the development of new, nonstandard tools for use by molecular biologists and biochemists. We have developed and implemented a series of methods that enable the production of expression constructs in 96-well plate format. A screening process is described that facilitates the identification(More)
