Temperature-dependent binding of monoclonal antibodies to C hordein.


The consensus octapeptide repeat motif of the barley seed storage protein C hordein, Pro-Gln-Gln-Pro-Phe-Pro-Gln-Gln, forms the epitope of two anti-prolamin monoclonal antibodies (Mabs), IFRN 0061 and 0614. The Mabs were found to exhibit unusual temperature-dependent binding characteristics, recognising C hordein and a peptide corresponding to the consensus… (More)
