Experiment Type: MIP-1 ALPHA ELISA
Extracellular immunoreactive MIP1 ALPHA was quantitated using a modification of a double ligand method. Briefly, flat-bottomed 96-well microtiter plates (Immuno-Plate I 96-F; Nunc, Roskilde, Denmark) were coated with 5ul/well of rabbit anti-MIP1 ALPHA antibody (1 ng/ul in 0.6 M NaC1, 0.26 M H3BO4, and 0.08 N NaOH, pH 9.6) for 16 h at 4~ and then washed with PBS, pH 7.5, 0.05% Tween 20 (wash buffer). Microtiter plate nonspecific binding sites were blocked with 2% BSA in PBS and incubated for 90 min at 37 degree c Plates were rinsed four times with wash buffer, and diluted (1:2 and 1:10) cell-free supernatants in duplicate were added, followed by incubation for 1 h at 37 degree c Plates were washed four times, followed by the addition of 5ul/well biotinylated rabbit anti-MIP1 ALPHA antibody (3.5 ng/ul in PBS, pH 7.5, 0.05% Tween 20, and 2% FCS), and plates incubated for 30 min at 37 degree c. Plates were washed four times, streptavidin-peroxidase conjugate (Bio-Rad Laboratories, Richmond, CA) added, and the plates incubated for 30 rain at 37 degree c Plates were again washed four times and chromogen substrate (Bio-Rad Laboratories) added. The plates' reaction terminated with 50ul/well of 3 M H2SO4 solution. Plates were read at 490 nm in an ELISA reader. Standards were one-half log dilutions of recombinant MIP1 ALPHA from 1 pg/ml to 100 ng/ml. This ELISA method consistently detected MIP-la concentrations above 10 pg/ml.
1. Treatment of mice with rabbit anti-mouse MIP-1 alpha antibodies significantly decreased 8-d primary granuloma formation (> 40%) when compared with control mice. Anti-MIP-1 alpha sera also decreased vigorous (> 20%), but not modulated granuloma formation. These findings demonstrate that MIP-1 alpha contributes to cellular recruitment during schistosome egg granuloma formation. 2. A representative photomicrograph demonstrates the abrogation due to in vivo neutralization of MIP-1 alpha in primary granuloma formation. In many lesions, nearly all of the cellular infiltration was inhibited by the anti-MIP-1 alpha treatment.
