Production of heavy-chain class-switch variants of human monoclonal antibody by recombinant DNA technology.


We have previously established a human-mouse heterohybridoma (H6-3C4), which produced a human sperm-immobilizing antibody (mu, lambda of human type). The human rearranged immunoglobulin mu-chain and lambda-chain genes were cloned from the hybridoma H6-3C4. The cloned V region of the heavy chain (VH) gene was ligated to human immunoglobulin gamma 1-heavy… (More)
