IMMUNOLOGICAL IMAGES OF POLYCYCLIC AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS
Aim: To develop experimental model for definition of immunological images of chemical carcinogens. Materials and Methods: The conjugates of benzo[a]pyrene, benz[a]anthracene, anthracene, chrysene and pyrene with bovine serum albumin and yeast hexokinase were synthesized. Rabbits were immunized by bovine serum albumin-hapten conjugates. Antibodies to each hapten were isolated from the serum by affinity chromatography with the hapten-yeast hexokinase-Sepharose sorbents. The binding of each hapten with each antibody was determined by competitive immunoassay. Results: The immunological images of all the investigated chemical compounds were described. Conclusion: The model is proposed to determine the internal immunological images of anti-idiotypic monoclonal antibodies to chemical carcinogens.
