TARGET CELL 39 I 4 399 Polyclonal vs Monoclonal Antibodies Polyclonal Antibodies Produced by immunization of an animal followed by preparation of antiserum from blood or isolation of immunoglobulins from serum Antiserum or puri ed polyclonal immunoglobulin contains a collection of distinct antibody proteins that recognize distinct epitopes on the target antigen The antibodies are derived from distinct B cells that respond to the same antigen Most common animal sources are rabbit goat donkey or sheep Polyclonal antibodies have higher avidity and are more ef cient at crosslinking an antigen Polyclonal antibodies are more prone to crossreactivity and overall may be less speci c than monoclonals One reason is that a polyclonal antiserum may contain clones that recognize an epitope that is common to multiple related proteins Monoclonal Antibodies Production Individual antibody producing cells are isolated from and immunized animal and are immortalized in culture Antibodies are isolated from culture media Alternatively the immortalized tumor monoclonal cell line can be injected into the peritoneum of a host mouse The peritoneal uid call ascites can then be collected The ascites uid contains very high levels of the monoclonal antibody Monoclonal antibodies are derived from a single antigen speci c B cell are therefore identical in primary structure amino acid sequence in the variable domains and therefore all recognize a single distinct epitope on an antigen Most common animal sources are mouse and rat Monoclonal antibodies have lower avidities and are less ef cient at crosslinking antigens Monoclonal antibodies are less prone to non speci c artifacts by selection of clones that recognize epitopes that are unique to the target antigen Common Methods of Detection in Antibody Based Assays 1 Fluorescent labels small uorescent molecules can be covalently crosslinked to immunoglobulins Examples Abbrev Chemical Name Color FITC uoresceine isothiocyanate Green PE

produce cytokines such as TNF and ILl that activate the endothelial cells of nearby venules to produce selectins ligands for inte grins and chemokines Selectins mediate weak tethering and rolling of blood leukocytes such as neu trophils on the endothelium integrins mediate firm adhesion of neutrophils and chemokines increase the affinity of neutrophil integrins and stimulate the migration of the cells through the endotheliUm to the site of infection Blood neutrophils monocytes and activated T lymphocytes use essentially the same mechanisms to migrate to sites of infection Fig 29 Monocytes circulating in the blood recognize blood vessel walls near sites of inflammation and leave the L39 to migrate into the Blood vessel lumen tissue toward the site of infection and inflammation The initial interactions are mediated by adhesion molecules that rst capture the monocyte from the bloodstream and cause it to adhere to the vascular endotheiium Chemokines bound to the vascular endotheiium then signal the monocyte to migrate across the endotheiium into the underlying tissue The monocyte now differentiating into a macrophage continues to migrate under the influence of chemokines released during inflammatory responses toward the site of infection Monocyte diiferentiates into a macrophage and migrates to the site of infection Monocyte binds adhesion molecules on vascular endotheiium near sites of infection and gets chemokine signal chemokine receptor migrates Into the surrounding tissue chemokine Tissue Fig 236 Neutrophils leave the blood and migrate to sites of intection in a multistep process mediated through adhesive interactions that are regulated by macrophage derived cytokines and chemokines The first step top panel involves the reversible binding of leukocytes to vascular endotheiium through interactions between selectins induced on the endotheiium and their carbohydrate ligands on the leukocyte shown here for Eselectin and its ligand the sialyl Lewis moiety s Lex This interaction cannot anchor the cells against the shearing force of the ow of blood and instead they roll along the endotheiium continually making and breaking contact The binding does however allow stronger Interactions which occur as a result of the induction of ICAM1 on the endotheiium and the activation of its receptors LFA1 and Mac1 not shown on the leukocyte by contact with a chemokine like ILB Tight binding between these molecules arrests the rolling and allows the leukocyte to squeeze between the endothelial cells forming the wall of the blood vessel to extravasate The leukocyte integrins LFAt and Mac1 are required for extravasation and for migration toward chemoat tractants Adhesion between molecules of CD31 expressed on both the leukocyte and the junction of the endotheliat cells is also thought to contribute to extravasation The leukocyte also needs to traverse the basement membrane it penetrates this with the aid of a matrix metallo proteinase enzyme that it expresses at the cell surface Finally the leukocyte migrates along a concentration gradient of chemokines here shown as IL 8 secreted by cells at the site of infection

endothetium CCRS Chemokines orchestrate the trafficking of dendritic cells T cells and B cells needed to generate an immune response By activating TLRs LPS on the surface of bacterial pathogens stimulates the local release of chemolu nes such as MlP Ia MlP t MlP aa and IP10 Immature dendritic cells are attracted to this site through activation of chemokine receptors such as CCRl CCR5 and CCR6 that they constitutiver express Immature dendritic cells are ef cient at pickingup antigen but must mature and differentiate into cells that can activate naive T cells The local milieu into which the immature dendritic cell is attracted contains pathogenassociated molecular patterns eg LPS that are recognized by PRRs such as 0014 and TLR5 which induce the differentiation and maturation of dendritic cells into potent antigen presenting cells During this process the dendritic cell downregulates expression of CCRI CCR5 and CCR6 and upregulates expression of CCR39I causing its migration into the afferent lymphatic system The CCR7 ligand SLC which is expressed on the endothelium of the afferent lymphatic system plays an important role in directing the migration of the antigenloaded mature dendritic cells Chemokines are Amwai aiigw dendritiooellr Endothelium lymphatics Afferent 39 lymph mirtw m s Efferenl lymph Current Opinion In Immunology also involved in bringing naive T cells and B cells from blood across high endothelial venules HEVs into the lymph nodes and into contact with the activated dendritic celL The molecular details remain to be elucidated but it is likely that chemokines such as DCCKI and ELC are important in juxtapositioning these cells in the lymph node SLC and ELC are produced from stromal cells in the Tcell zone and BLC is expressed from stromal cells in the Bcell follicle helping to guide cells to T and 3ch areas respectively Some activated T cells downregulale expression of CCR7 but upregulate CXCR5 and so become directed toward the follicle to deliver help to B cells whereas other activated T cells upregulate CXCR3 and are attracted into inflamed tissue T cells that are activated in regional lymph nodes alter encountean antigenloaded dendritic cells subsequently return to sites of inflammation by sensing chernokine gradients established at these local sites Chemokines such as lPto which is induced by LPS and lFNy and a ligand for CXCRS which is highly expressed on activated T cells are believed to be important in this process in immune responses mediated by Th1 cells Phasequot 39T39B prepc msmace Day 1 Day 7 Fig l Initiating
