Human anti-pneumococci antibody produced by an Epstein Barr virus (EBV)-immortalized cell line.

Abstract

Anti-pneumococcal antibody-producing lymphocytes from a patient who was immunized with Pneumovax (a polysaccharide mixture from 14 different pneumococci types) were selected and immortalized with Epstein Barr virus (EBV). The cells of the emerging cloned line were shown on a single cell level assay to secrete an IgM, kappa anti-pneumococci antibody. This… (More)
