Preparation and standardization of perotidase-labeled anti-human IgG antibody for use in determination of serum antinuclear antibody levels

American Journal of Clinical Pathology
E R WalwickR M Nakamura


Peroxidase-labeled antibody conjugates were prepared by a two-step conjugation procedure using glutaraldehyde. Immunoadsorbent-purified antibody and the gamma-globulin fraction of sheep anti-human IgG antiserum were employed for these preparations, Procedures for the determination of the antibody and enzymatic activity, as well as the specificity of the enzy-e-antibody reactions, were outlined. Peroxidase-anti-human-IgG conjugates were prepared with approximately a 1:1 molar ratio of peroxidase to IgG, which demonstrated a loss of 10-15% of precipitating antibody activity. Standardization procedures for use of peroxidase-labeled antibody in the indirect ANA test were established. The peroxidase-labeled antibody in the indirect ANA test were established. The peroxidase-antibody procedure was found to demonstrate a reproducible plateau endpoint which was comparable to that of the fluorescent antibody preparations.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Social Learning

Social learning involves learning new behaviors through observation, imitation and modeling. Follow this feed to stay up to date on the latest research.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Single Cell Chromatin Profiling

Techniques like ATAC-seq and CUT&Tag have the potential to allow single cell profiling of chromatin accessibility, histones, and TFs. This will provide novel insight into cellular heterogeneity and cell states. Discover the latest research on single cell chromatin profiling here.
