High titer antibodies primarily of the IgG class were produced against galactocerebroside (GalC) by including keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) and supplemental M. tuberculosis in the adjuvant mixture used for immunization of rabbits. Antibody titers were determined by an ELISA in which microtiter wells were coated with liposomes containing lecithin, cholesterol and GalC. The antibodies showed reactivity with GalC and psychosine, but not glucocerebroside, sulfatide, mixed gangliosides or asialo… CONTINUE READING
