Novel recombinant monoclonal antibodies for vitellogenin assays in cyprinid fish species.

Various polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies have been developed for vitellogenin (Vtg) bioassays in different aquatic species. Preparation of these reagents is time-consuming and expensive. In the present study, a phage-displayed, recombinant, single-chain variable fragment (scFv) format antibody library was constructed using splenic mRNA from non… CONTINUE READING
