An assay for antibodies in leprosy sera reacting with ribonucleoprotein (RNP), a mycobacterial ribosomal antigen, using crossed immunoelectrophoresis with intermediate gel.

Abstract

The technique of crossed immunoelectrophoresis with intermediate gel has been adapted to provide a quantitative assay for antibodies to a mycobacterial ribosomal antigen termed ribonucleoprotein (RNP) antigen. This antigen is no. 1 in the M. smegmatis reference system and corresponds to antigen no. 5 of M. leprae. The assay method measures changes in the… (More)
