Applications
Suzanne Epstein that reacts with the gp120 of HIV-1.
In ELISA the antibody reacts with rgp120 IIIB, but not with gp120 MN.
It binds to the C2 region (positions 254 - 274) gp120 synthetic peptide used to map antibody reactivity, and was not able to cross block any other antibodies in the panel.
Derivation
Spleen cells were fused with Sp2/0-Ag14 myeloma cells.
55-2 is one of a panel of antibodies developed by Dr. Suzanne Epstein that reacts with the gp120 of HIV-1.
Genes Expressed
immunoglobulin; monoclonal antibody; against human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1) gp120
Cellular Products
immunoglobulin; monoclonal antibody; against human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1) gp120
Tumorigenic Yes
Effects
Yes, in BALB/c mice
Comments
Animals were sequentially immunized with recombinant gp120 (rgp120) from three different nonglycosylated isolates of HIV-1 (IIIB, SF2, and Z6).
Spleen cells were fused with Sp2/0-Ag14 myeloma cells.

Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC Hybri-Care Medium, Catalog No. 46-X. Hybri-Care Medium is supplied as a powder and should be reconstituted in 1 L cell-culture-grade water and supplemented with 1.5 g/L sodium bicarbonate. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Subculturing
