Three new cross-reacting idiotopes as markers for the products of two distinct human VH3 genes expressed in the early repertoire.

This article describes characterization of three new cross-reacting idiotopes, as recognized by mouse MoAbs, on human antibodies utilizing VH3 genes that are expressed in the early repertoire. Two of the mouse MoAbs (3H7 and 3H1) were raised against a human MoAb utilizing the DP47 (VH26) VH3 gene, whilst the third (7B4) was raised against a DP46 (GLSJ2… (More)
