Sammendrag

Cloning and sequencing the cDNA of around 50 VH (VDJ) and 15 VL genes in Atlantic salmon demonstrated nine VH families (above 80% identity within each family) and one dominating but relatively diverse VL family in this species. The highest variability of the VH was seen in the CDR3, but CDR2 also expressed a modest variability. The 'whole' antibody repertoire was expressed as single chain Fv (scFv) in a phage display library by combining 12 VH and two VL specific primers (FR1/mul and FR1/CL, respectively). The PCR products (VH and VL) were ligated (with a G-rich spacer) into the lambda Surf-Zap (Stratagene) vector and expressed as a surface fusion protein on the M13 phage. Anti-TNP and anti-FITC specific scFv clones were isolated by panning using hapten-coated magnetic beads and the coding DNA sequenced. The specificities of the anti-TNP and anti-FITC clones were similar to mouse monoclonal antibodies. 3D-models of the active sites (CDRs) of the anti-TNP and anti-FITC clones suggest hapten-interacting structures of the salmon antibody site similar to mammalian antibodies.
