Cross-reactive monoclonal antibodies raised against the lipopolysaccharide antigen of Salmonella minnesota Re chemotype: diagnostic relevance.


Three cross-reactive monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) of IgM and IgG2b isotype were generated in two separate fusions after immunization of BALB/c mice with heat killed Salmonella minnesota R595 of Re chemotype and acid-treated bacteria, coated with Re lipopolysaccharide (LPS) antigen.
