Clustered H chain somatic mutations shared by anti-p-azophenylarsonate antibodies confer enhanced affinity and ablate the cross-reactive idiotype.

Abstract

A cluster of four consecutive CDR2 somatic mutations are shared by the VH regions of two independently isolated hybridoma antibodies with specificity for p-azophenylarsonate (Ars). The mutations appear to be derived by a series of independent events. To assess the influence of these shared somatic mutations on antibody affinity for Ars and on idiotypy, we… (More)
