Primary biliary cirrhosis: antigenic specificity of IgM-type mitochondrial antibodies analyzed by immunoblotting and ELISA.

Abstract

The antigenic reactivities of circulating IgM- and IgG-type antimitochondrial antibodies (AMA) from 18 patients with primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) were compared by the use of immunoblotting and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). In immunoblotting, the binding patterns of IgM and IgG were very similar when F1-ATPase and mitochondria were used as… (More)
