Immunological Methods, Volume II compiles procedures that are appropriate for studies in immunology.
This book discusses the determination of equilibrium binding parameters of monoclonal antibodies specific for cell surface antigens; two-dimensional gel electrophoresis; and measurements of antibodies specific for DNA. The methods in surface physics for immunology; HLA-DR typing by complement-dependent B lymphocyte lysis; and protein A plaque assay for the detection of immunoglobulin-secreting cells are also elaborated.
This text also covers the in vitro production and testing of antigen-induced mediators of helper T-cell function; limiting dilution analysis of precursors of cytotoxic T lymphocytes; and induction of antibody formation in mouse bone marrow. Other topics include the long-term culture and cloning of specific helper T cells; cloning of alloreactive T cells; and enzyme immunoassay for the detection of hybridoma products.
This publication is valuable to immunologists and medical practitioners researching on immunological methods.
