This hybridoma was developed by A. Hamburger, et al. (1985a) after immunization of BALB/c mice with membrane-enriched preparations from primary cultures of human keratinocytes. TIB 18) were used as fusion partners, and a modified ELISA screening method was used to identify positive clones. The antibody reacts very strongly with stratified squamous epithelia. The cell surface antigen detected is distinct from other epithelial-specific antigens as shown by differences in tissue distribution and cellular localization.

1988) 'Physical mechanisms of cell damage in microcarrier cell culture bioreactors' Biotechnology and Bioengineering, 32, 1001-1014. R. -Conn. A. ABSTRACT. Monoclonal antibody (MAb) production was evaluated with three different murine hybridoma cell lines in a "mini" hollow fiber bioreactor. Optimized production rates between 17-25 mg/day could be achieved with medium consumption of 2 liters per week. Antibody product was harvested at 3-4 mg/ml up to five times per week. Bioreactor productivity was enhanced twofold when cartridges were inoculated by direct ultrafiltration of cells in their conditioned medium as opposed to centrifugation, resuspension and inoculation in a smaller volume of fresh medium.
