V. Tolstikov. In Vitro Effects of Anti-HIV Immunotoxins Directed against Multiple Epitopes on HIV Type 1 Envelope Glycoprotein 160. AIDS Res. Hum. Retroviruses, 12:1041-1051, 1996. A panel of anti-gp160 MAbs to was used to construct anti-HIV immunotoxins by coupling antibodies to ricin A chain (RAC). The ability of the immunotoxins to kill HIV-1-infected cells was tested in tissue culture. Immunotoxins that bind epitopes on the cell surface killed infected cells, although killing was not directly proportional to binding. The activity of anti-gp41 immunotoxins was markedly enhanced in the presence of sCD4. PubMed ID: 8827220. Show all entries for this paper.
