Burton1991 D. R. Burton, C. F. Barbas III, M. A. Persson, S. Koenig, R. M. Chanock, and R. A. Lerner. A large array of human monoclonal antibodies to type 1 human immunodeficiency virus from combinatorial libraries of asymptomatic seropositive individuals. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A., 88:10134-10137, 1991. A panel of human monoclonal antibody Fab fragments was generated against the surface of the gp120 glycoprotein of HIV-1 by antigen selection from a random combinatorial library prepared from 5 ml of bone marrow from an asymptomatic individual who had been HIV-positive for 6 years. These Fab variable regions were sequenced and were found to be diverse. Binding constants were measured and the Fabs generally bound gp120 with high affinity. The methods used to obtain this panel could be used to obtain antibodies to test passive immunization as a therapy for AIDS. PubMed ID: 1719545. Show all entries for this paper.
