Monoclonal antibodies directed against the calcium binding protein parvalbumin

Cell Calcium. 1988 Apr;9(2):81-6. doi: 10.1016/0143-4160(88)90027-9.


We have produced twelve monoclonal antibodies (McAB) against carp-II parvalbumin. Three of them, designated 235, 239, 267 recognize determinants conserved in fish, chicken, mouse, rat, monkey and human parvalbumin. We show their use in the qualitative detection of parvalbumin (PV) by immunohistochemistry, in the quantitation of parvalbumin by radioimmunoassay and in the detection of parvalbumin on immunoblots.
