Individual B lymphocyte hybridoma

is cloned and cultured.

Secreted antibodies are collected

from culture media

Antibodies that are collected

from sera of exposed animal

Monoclonal Antibodies

Populações homogêneas de anticorpos derivados de uma única célula produtora de anticorpo, na qual todos os anticorpos possuem a mesma especificidade para um determinante antigênico.

uses of monoclonal antibodies
Protein purification

Identification and isolation of cell sub-populations using fluorescence cell sorting.

Tumor detection and imaging

Tumor killing (magic bullets)

Diagnostic reagents

Uses of Monoclonal Antibodies:
how does we make a monoclonal antibody
Immunize mice

Test the serum

Perform a fusion

Screen the fusion for the right cells

Grow the hybridomas

Harvest the antibody

Concentrate and purify the product

How does we make a monoclonal antibody?
test the serum bleeding the mice
Blood is drawn into the tube.

A capillary tube is applied to nicked vein.

Test the serum - Bleeding the mice
test the serum decision time
When the serum titer of the mice has reached a plateau, an additional ELISA test is performed to determine the predominant isotype present. The two isotypes that are most common in mouse serum are IgG and IgM.

A fusion is done when the IgG level is high and the IgM level is low.

Sometimes additional testing is done (Western blots, immunoflurorescence) to determine whether the serum response is specific for the selected antigen.

The mouse with the strongest, most specific response is chosen for the fusion.

Test the serum - Decision time


Anticorpos Monoclonais - Produção


Diluição Limitante

  • Um clone por poço
  • Certeza de que um tipo de clone está proliferando em um poço
    • Teste de detecção
    • Diluição limitante
    • Teste de detecção
    • Expansão – produção dos AcMo
perform a fusion growing the cells hybridomas
Perform a fusion - Growing the cells (hybridomas)
  • Cells are grown in a 37o C incubator.
  • Cells are kept in an atmosphere of about 6% CO2.
  • The cells are fed after 7 days of incubation.
  • The cells are checked for growth after 10 days of incubation.
harvest the antibody
1) The antibody is produced by the cells and released into the cell supernatant.

2) Media is added to the flasks until the desired volume of antibody-containing supernatant is obtained.

3) When the desired volume is reached, the supernatant is refrigerated and tested by ELISA.

4) If the testing is successful, the supernatant can be used by the investigator, or concentrated and purified.

Harvest the antibody
expand in mice or expand in vitro
Expand in mice or expand in vitro

in vitro material is less concentrated

and contains

bovine serum

ascites fluid

contain high [mAb]

and minor contamination

with mouse Ig

concentrate and purify the product
Concentrate and Purify the Product
  • The antibody can be concentrated by precipitation with a solution of saturated ammonium sulfate.
  • Concentrated antibody can then be purified by passing it through a column.

Radioactive Antibodies


Monoclonal antibodies, which are specific for a certain antigen, i.e. prostate carcinoma cells, can be tagged with a radioactive tracer,which when injected into the body will localize in areas of these recurrent carcinoma cells
