Antigen 5 is a 35,000-dalton protein which has been purified from culture filtrates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and shown by immunoprecipitation to be restricted in distribution to M. tuberculosis and M. bovis among 14 mycobacterial species studied. We raised 19 antigen 5-reactive monoclonal antibodies and used them to characterize epitopes of this… CONTINUE READING
