Tools for cellular immunology and vaccine research the in the guinea pig: Monoclonal antibodies to cell surface antigens and cell lines
The use of monoclonal antibodies directed against membrane proteins of leukocytes has greatly contributed to our understanding of the function and development of the immune system. Meanwhile these reagents provide valuable tools in many fields of research, stretching far beyond immunology and hematology. For guinea pigs only a limited number of such reagents have been described, and the information about availability and specificity is scattered over many years and journals. We provide an overview on the monoclonal antibodies produced since the technique was applied first in this species, with a focus on those reagents which have been characterized in more detail, and which should still be available either commercially or directly from the labs that created them.

Depletion depends on microbial enzymes such as arginases, which are considered virulence factors. The effect is mostly ...
