Abstract

Hybridoma cells produced by fusing mouse myeloma cells with spleen cells from mice primed with herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1 yielded five clones producing neutralizing antibody against homologous virus. Two clones, HCl and HC2, produced antibody capable of precipitating glycoprotein C and its precursor, whereas three clones, HD1, HD2, and HD3, produced antibody capable of precipitating glycoprotein D and its precursor. Antibody produced by the HC1 and HC2 clones neutralized HSV type 1 but not HSV type 2 or HSV type 1 strain MP, which is known to lack glycoprotein C. Antibody produced by the HD1 and HD2 clones neutralized both HSV type 1 and HSV type 2, whereas antibody produced by the HD3 clone neutralized HSV type 1 but not HSV type 2. The two clones which produced antibody to glycoprotein C and the two clones which produced type-common antibody to glycoprotein D were independently derived and not clonally related inasmuch as the antibody in each pair belonged to a different subclass of immunoglobulin.

Antibody Specificity

Antibodies produced by B cells are highly specific for antigen as a result of random gene recombination and somatic hypermutation and affinity maturation. As the main effector of the humoral immune system, antibodies can neutralize foreign cells. Find the latest research on antibody specificity here.
