Isolation and characterization of monoclonal antibodies against pili of Corynebacterium renale and Corynebacterium pilosum.

Five monoclonal antibodies against pili of Corynebacterium renale 115 P+ (piliated clone) and two monoclonal antibodies against pili of C. pilosum 92 P+ (piliated clone) were produced. These antibodies bound to pili of the homologous strain in in enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and agglutinated P+ but not P- (non-piliated clone) of each homologous… (More)
