AIMS This study aims to develop and characterize monoclonal antibodies (Mabs) with high specificity and affinity for surface antigens of an epidemiologically important serotype 4b of Listeria monocytogenes. METHODS AND RESULTS Hybridoma clones were derived from B lymphocytes of mice immunized with L. monocytogenes serotype 4b and screened against this strain by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Twenty-nine clones secreting Mabs reactive with formalin-killed bacteria were obtained; 15, 8… CONTINUE READING
