Wheat germ agglutinin accumulation in coleoptiles of different genotypes of wheat. Localization by monoclonal antibodies

We have produced a library of 18 monoclonal antibodies (mABs) against wheat germ agglutinin (WGA). It was difficult to establish antibody-producing hybridomas when soluble WGA was used for immunization. The frequency of specific hybridomas was increased, however, by injecting mice with insoluble antigen-antibody complex. We distinguished groups of mABs that… (More)
