Monoclonal antibodies against isoelectrically focused Nocardia asteroides proteins characterized by the enzyme-linked immunoelectro-transfer blot method.

Sera from rabbits immunized with culture filtrates and homogenates of Nocardia asteroides B1042 gave at least eight precipitin bands by immunoelectrophoresis. At least 20 proteins with isoelectric points (pls) in the pH 4 to 5.4 range were observed in isoelectric focusing patterns. The enzyme-linked immunoelectro-transfer blot (EITB) assay showed that… (More)
