Abstract
Binding specificity of a monoclonal antibody (mAb) (κ, γ 2b) H8 which can react with the pre-S2 peptide of hepatitis B virus (HBV) determined by Western blot analyses. From the hybridoma cell line secreting mAb H8, poly(A)+ RNA was prepared and used as a template for cDNA synthesis and cloning. Full-length cDNAs coding for the heavy and κ light chains of the mAb were cloned from the cDNA library and characterized by nucleotide (nt) sequence analyses and N-terminal amino acid sequencing. The sequence analyses revealed that both heavy and light chain-specific cDNAs are functional, and the variable regions of the heavy and light chains are members of mouse heavy chain subgroup III(c) and light chain group I, respectively. Comparison of the nt sequences with mouse immunoglobulin genes listed in the GenBank data base show that the cDNAs have not been previously reported. The cDNAs will be used for the construction of a therapeutic antibody for HBV infection.
