|Title:||Generation of single domain antibody fragments derived from camelids and generation of manifold constructs||Authors:||Vincke, Cécile
|Issue Date:||2012||Publisher:||1064-3745||Journal:||Methods in molecular biology (Clifton, N.J.)||Abstract:||Immunizing a camelid (camels and llamas) with soluble, properly folded proteins raises an affinity-matured immune response in the unique camelid heavy-chain only antibodies (HCAbs). The peripheral blood lymphocytes of the immunized animal are used to clone the antigen-binding antibody fragment from the HCAbs in a phage display vector. A representative aliquot of the library of these antigen-binding fragments is used to retrieve single domain antigen-specific binders by successive rounds of panning. These single domain antibody fragments are cloned in tandem to generate manifold constructs (bivalent, biparatopic or bispecific constructs) to increase their functional affinity, to increase specificity, or to connect two independent antigen molecules. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/51921||ISBN:||9781617799730||ISSN:||1064-3745||DOI:||10.1007/978-1-61779-974-7-8||Source:||Methods in Molecular Biology[ISSN 1064-3745],v. 907, p. 145-176|
