Abstract

Protein A-Sepharose CL-4B (PAS) was used to isolate rabbit immunoglobulin G from crude anti-herpes simplex virus-1 serum. Papain treatment of the PAS-bound immunoglobulin G released Fab fragments from the solid support, while Fc-containing fragments remained bound to PAS. PAS-immobilized immunoglobulin G was fluoresceinated by reaction with fluorescein isothiocyanate followed by papain cleavage to yield fluorescein-conjugated Fab fragments in solution. These fragments retained activity toward herpes simplex virus-1 infected Vero cells as evaluated by immunofluorescence. This novel procedure represents the fastest and simplest method for preparing Fab or fluoresceinated Fab fragments directly from any volume of immune serum.
