To prepare and characterize the monoclonal antibody (mAb) against human SOCS3. BALB/c mice were immunized with recombinant GST-SOCS3 protein, from which the spleen cells were isolated and fused with Sp2/0 cells. After several rounds of screening and cloning, the hybridoma cell strain secreting anti-SOCS3 mAb was obtained, whose specificity was evaluated using ELISA and Western blotting, and the titer, immunoglobulin subtype and affinity of the mAb were also measured. The hybridoma cell strain secreting anti-SOCS3 mAb was identified to belong to IgG2a subtype. The mAb titers in cultural supernatant and acetic fluid were 1:640 and 1:25600, respectively, as determined by ELISA with affinity reaching 4.84x10(6) L/mol. The success in anti-SOCS3 mAb preparation provides the basis for further study of the negative regulation of cytokine signal transduction and the immunoregulation in microorganism infections.
