Production of H-Y antibody in the ascites fluid of mouse and localization of the antigen on cells and tissues.

A procedure is described for the production of large amounts of ascites fluid containing specific H-Y antibody. The distribution of H-Y antigen on mouse epididymal spermatozoa, thymocytes, and splenocytes was carried out using this specific antibody in the microcytotoxicity test and ELISA. Employing the indirect immunofluorescent technique, the H-Y antigen… CONTINUE READING
