Describe polyclonal and monoclonal antibody production?

Cells vs, animals: A monoclonal antibody is produced by in-vitro manipulation by expoanding a single cell making a desired antibody. Polyclonal antibodies are usually derived from immunizing an animal and colletcting its blood/serum containing the antibody. Polyclonal antibodies are a mixture of a large number of different cells. ...Read more

Does a monoclonal antibody reactive with the o139 antigen of e.Coli would cross react with v.Cholera o139?

Apparently not.: This does not seem likely because first that the v cholera is usually found in india and bangladesh while ecoli is usually in the U.S., mexico, and south america. Second, the mechanisms are different because the genes for toxicity on the e coli strains are not present in the v cholera. Third, there seems to be no information on any cross reaction of these two o 139 strains. ...Read more

Hello..What is the monoclonal antibody?How it works?

Monoclonal antibody: A monoclonal antibody means that it is a specific antibody made by a cell, and that all the antibodies are the same. Usually this is done to try to target a specific receptor on a cell or virus. For instance if a scientist finds a susceptible part of a virus and wants to target it, they will try to create an monoclonal antibody to bind to it. This process is done for a multitude of reasons. ...Read more

Discuss monoclonal antibody production?

Monospecific Ab.: Monoclonal antibodies are those that are produced by the identical immune cells that are descended from the same parent cell. They produce anitibodies that bind to only one epitope or site on an antigen. This means that they are monospecific. This makes them useful in things like research because they can isolate a strain purely and completely. ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: monoclonal antibody?

Cloned B cell: B-cell produce antibodies. Sometimes a b-cell can be cloned, and it produces many copies of the same antibody, hence a monoclonal antibody. Monoclonal antibodies can be seen in multiple myeloma, and myoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance (mgus). ...Read more

Whats a monoclonal antibody?

Antibody to one site: Monoclonal antibodies (mab or moab) are monospecific antibodies that are the same because they are made by identical immune cells that are all clones of a special parent cell. Monoclonal antibodies have monovalent affinity. That is, they bind to the same epitope/site. These can be used in treating cancer, autoimmune diseases, like rheumatoid arthritis, and in diagnostic tests, like western blot. ...Read more
