Isolation Paper
Earl1994 P. L. Earl, C. C. Broder, D. Long, S. A. Lee, J. Peterson, S. Chakrabarti, R. W. Doms, and B. Moss. Native oligomeric human immunodeficiency virus type 1 Envelope glycoprotein elicits diverse monoclonal antibody reactivities. J. Virol., 68:3015-3026, 1994. In a study of the repertoire of response to oligomeric versus monomeric Env protein, 138 murine MAbs were generated in response to an immunogen that was a gp120/bp41 oligomeric molecule that was not cleaved due to a mutation in the cleavage site. The oligomeric molecule was found to elicit a response that was very different than the monomer. Most MAbs were conformational, many were to gp41 or if in gp120, to the CD4 BS. Few MAbs to linear V3 epitopes were produced in response to oligomeric protein, though this was a common specificity in response to immunization with gp120 monomeric protein. PubMed ID: 7512157.

Broder1994 C.C. Broder, P.L. Earl, D. Long, S.T. Abedon, B. Moss, and R.W. Doms. Antigenic implications of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 envelope quaternary structure: Oligomer-specific and -sensitive monoclonal antibodies. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A., 91:11699-11703, 1994. 35 anti-gp41 and 27 anti-gp120 murine MAbs generated by immunization with oligomeric HIV-1 IIIB envelope were studied. These MAbs tended to react with conformational epitopes. 21 of the anti-gp41 MAbs reacted preferentially with oligomeric env, while only 1 of the anti-gp120 MAbs reacted more strongly with the oligomer, and 14 of the anti-gp120 preferentially recognized monomeric env.

Richardson1996 T. M. Richardson, Jr., B. L. Stryjewski, C. C. Broder, J. A. Hoxie, J. R. Mascola, P. L. Earl, and R. W. Doms. Humoral response to oligomeric human immunodeficiency virus type 1 envelope protein. J. Virol., 70:753-62, 1996. An Env antigen capture enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay using a soluble, oligomeric form of HIV-1IIIB Env (gp140) that contains gp120 and the gp41 ectodomain was developed. The gp140, captured by various monoclonal antibodies (MAbs), retained its native oligomeric structure: it bound CD4 and was recognized by MAbs to conformational epitopes in gp120 and gp41, including oligomer-specific epitopes in gp41.
