A double monoclonal antibody assay for the Alternaria allergen GP70.

Abstract

A double monoclonal antibody-based assay for the 70-kD Alternaria allergen GP70 is described. The assay is sensitive to GP70 concentrations as low as 0.2 microgram/mL and is highly specific for this allergen. The glycoprotein detected by this assay is shown to bind to human IgE from Alternaria-sensitive patients, proving that it is an allergen. Two of three… (More)
