Development of a DNA immunoadsorbent: coupling DNA on sepharose 4FF by an efficient activation method.


To remove anti-DNA antibodies from a patient's plasma with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), a DNA immunoadsorbent was developed by covalently coupling calf thymus DNA on activated Sepharose 4FF. Sepharose 4FF was activated with 5-norbornene-2,3-dicarboximido carbonochloridate (Cl-CO-ONB), which was proven to be a very effective method for preparation of… (More)
