Production of Novel Monoclonal Antibodies Against Extracellular Polysaccharides from Pleurotus ostreatus by Using Hybridoma Technology
by Magda Semedo, Sona Martins, Amin Karmali and Luis Fonseca.
This poster presents strong scientific evidence that monoclonal antibodies raised against beta glucans from MRL´s Pleurotus ostreatus also recognize beta glucans from other MRL products which is very interesting regarding their tertiary structure. The importance of the tertiary structure of beta-glucans is due to the fact that all beta-glucans with anti-tumor activity exhibited this tertiary structure.
