Two murine monoclonal antibodies against serogroup E Salmonellae

Appl Environ Microbiol. 2000 Jan;66(1):419-21. doi: 10.1128/AEM.66.1.419-421.2000.


A monoclonal antibody (MAb), MO15, was raised against the lipopolysaccharide antigen of an epsilon15-lysogenized serogroup E(1) Salmonella strain. The O factor 15-specific MAb MO15, together with another serogroup E-specific MAb, can differentiate among phage lysogenization variants in serogroup E salmonellae. Their epitope specificities in relation to conventional O-antigenic structures are discussed.
