Generation and characterization of putative monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies against tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase.

The generation of monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) specific for tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) may aid development of a serological immunoassay for this marker of bone resorption. The lack of MAbs to TRAP largely reflects the difficulty in obtaining sufficient antigen for in vivo immunization strategies. We have circumvented this problem by using in… CONTINUE READING
