Abstract :

The aim of the present study was to test the antigenicity of a-deoxyribonucleotides in order to develop a new tool for the detection of nucleic acid sequences for use in diagnostic applications. We describe four monoclonal antibodies (Mabs) which recognize a-deoxyribonucleotides. Two were raised against a poly(a-dT) sequence and specifically recognized the a-dT nucleotide. Two were raised against a sequence containing all four common nucleotides as a-nucleotides and, surprisingly, only recognized the a-dG nucleotide. For all four Mabs, no cross reactivity was observed with ß-oligonucleotides.
