Mouse monoclonal antibody MON-100 was raised against the neuroendocrine protein 7B2 using bacterially produced hybrid proteins. In Western blot analysis, MON-100 reacted with 3 different 7B2 hybrid proteins and not with the respective carrier proteins. Furthermore, MON-100 was reactive with recombinant 7B2 cleaved from a hybrid protein. In an immunohistochemical study, MON-100 exhibited strong reactivity with the intermediate lobe of the Xenopus pituitary gland, a tissue previously shown to contain 7B2 mRNA. Using MON-100, immunoprecipitation analysis of newly synthesized proteins produced by in vitro incubated Xenopus neurointermediate lobes revealed the biosynthesis of a single protein of Mr 24 kDa, the expected size of the 7B2 protein. It appears, therefore, that the anti-7B2 monoclonal antibody MON-100 can be successfully used for Western blot analysis and immunohistochemical analysis as well as for immunoprecipitation experiments.
