Recombinant monoclonal antibody to paclitaxel. Manufactured using AbAb’s Recombinant Platform with variable regions (i.e. specificity) from the hybridoma 3A3.
Alternative Name(s) of Target: PT; PTX; Taxol; 7-Xylosylpaclitaxel; Taxol-7-xyloside; 7-xylosyltaxol
Immunogen: This antibody was raised by immunising BALB/c mice with a solution of 7-xylosyltaxol conjugated to the carrier protein bovine serum albumin (XylTax–BSA).7-xylosyltaxol is a taxol (paclitaxel) derivative, which binds to tubulin and inhibits microtubule dis
Specificity: This antibody is specific for paclitaxel, an anti-neoplastic agent derived from the Pacific yew. It displays low cross-reactivity with other naturally-occurring taxanes.
Application Notes: This antibody has been used in an indirect competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay to determine the paclitaxel content of yew tree samples, with a detection range of 0.098–312.5 μg ml−1 (Chao et al, 2012). An scFv derived from this antibody reacts with both free and immobilised paclitaxel in icELISA analysis, and exhibits less cross-reactivity for paclitaxel-related compounds (Yusakul et al, 2016).
