Epitope mapping of 12 monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) directed to the trisaccharide part of the phenolic glycolipid-I (PGL-I) of Mycobacterium leprae was carried out by using the set of chemically synthesized sugar-BSA conjugates. The results can be summarized as follows: mAb (1-21), mAb (1-24) and mAb (1-25) recognized the outer (nonreducing end… CONTINUE READING
