Monoclonal antibodies specific for dengue virus type 3.

By D Dittmar, H G Haines and A Castro

Abstract

Mouse lymphocyte hybridomas were prepared by polyethylene glycol-mediated fusion of cells from a mouse plasmacytoma line with lymphocytes from a mouse hyperimmunized with dengue virus type 3 (dengue-3). Media from 50 hybrid colonies were screened; 46 of them showed antibody activity against dengue-3-infected cells as determined by an indirect immunofluorescent antibody technique. Dengue monoclonal antibody obtained after cloning one of these colonies demonstrated activity in hemagglutination inhibition and indirect immunofluorescent antibody assays with dengue-3 antigen, but not type 1, 2, and 4 antigens. In addition, this antibody activity could be removed from culture media only by absorption with dengue-3 antigen
