Antibody class: IgG2aκ
The B cell hybridoma was generated by the fusion of Sp2/0 BALB/c mouse myeloma cells with splenocytes from mice immunized by DNA vaccination with a plasmid encoding the HA of influenza virus, A/South Carolina/1/1918 (H1N1) and then boosted with whole inactivated virus.
Name of Depositor A Garcia-Sastre
Mouse monoclonal antibody prepared against the H1 hemagglutinin (HA) of influenza virus A/South Carolina/1/1918 (H1N1) was purified from clone 5D3 hybridoma supernatant by protein G affinity chromatography.
