A novel multiplex method for the simultaneous detection and relative quantitation of pollen allergens.Standardization of pollen protein extracts is essential in order to ensure efficiency and safety in allergy diagnosis and immunotherapy. In this paper, we have optimized a multiplex Western blotting method for the simultaneous detection of four olive pollen allergens (Ole e 1, Ole e 2, Ole e 5, and Ole e 9) on a single blot using a monoclonal antibody from mouse and three polyclonal antibodies raised in rabbit. We utilized unconjugated Fab antibody fragments for blocking rabbit primary antibodies, and fluorescence-based detection. These changes allowed an accurate and reliable comparative quantitation of these allergens among pollen-protein samples from six olive cultivars. In addition, we also tested the IgE-binding capacity of these pollen extracts by reprobing the same blot with a pool of sera from eight patients allergic to olive and detection with enzyme conjugated antibodies. A noticeable variability regarding allergen content and IgE-reactivity was found among the olive cultivars analyzed. Moreover, we could easily confirm the identity of some of the IgE-binding proteins by simply overlapping both fluorescence and chemiluminescence images. This method is versatile since it can be applied to other allergogenic plant species and extended to other allergens.

New ELISA for B cell-activating factor.The B cell-activating factor of the TNF family (BAFF) is upregulated in autoimmune diseases, but a number of conflicting results have cast doubts on the reliability of the ELISA protocols currently used for its quantification. This situation led us to develop a new ELISA for the measurement of BAFF.

A novel radioimmunoassay of 16alpha-hydroxy-dehydroepiandrosterone and its physiological levels.16alpha-Hydroxy-dehydroepiandrosterone (16alpha-OH-DHEA) belongs to the products of extensive DHEA metabolism in mammalian tissues. It is a precursor of 16alpha-hydroxylated estrogens, increased levels of which are associated with autoimmune disorders. A highly specific radioimmunoassay of unconjugated 16alpha-OH-DHEA was developed and evaluated. Polyclonal rabbit antisera were raised against 3beta,16alpha-dihydroxy-17,19-dione-19-O-(carboxymethyloxime) and 3beta,16alpha-dihydroxy-7,17-dione-7-O-(carboxymethyloxime) BSA conjugates. Two methods were used for preparation of the conjugates. Homologous radioiodinated derivatives with tyrosine methyl ester were prepared as tracers. While antisera to 7-CMO cross-reacted with DHEA as much as by 58%, the cross-reaction of the chosen antiserum prepared via 19-oxogroup by micellar conjugation technique with 16beta-OH-DHEA was only 0.13% and with all other structurally related steroids, including DHEA were lower than 0.01%. The detection limit was 0.017 pmol (5.7 pg)/tube, the average intra- and inter-assay coefficients of variation were 8.2 and 11.4%, respectively. Mean recovery of serum spiked with 16alpha-OH-DHEA varied between 80 and 110%, the results were independent on sample dilution. 16alpha-OH-DHEA concentrations in 18 randomly selected sera, including 6 samples from patients with thyroid cancer were compared with results obtained by earlier GC-MS method. Physiological levels of 16alpha-OH-DHEA in 316 sera (184 females and 132 males) analyzed so far varied between 0.0 and 1.86 nmol/l.

Protective role of unconjugated bilirubin on complement-mediated hepatocytolysis.Hyperbilirubinemia and complement-mediated immune attack on hepatocyte membrane are common features of certain hepatic diseases. To assess whether unconjugated bilirubin (UB) counteracts complement-mediated hepatocytolysis, we first generated a rabbit polyclonal antibody (Ab) against rat hepatocyte plasma membrane (RHPM). An assay performed with isolated rat hepatocytes in the presence of the polyclonal Ab and rat serum as complement donor demonstrated that UB inhibits cell lysis, as lactate dehydrogenase release into the medium was inhibited by the pigment in a dose-dependent manner. Immunofluorescence microscopy studies showed that UB significantly attenuates the binding of C3 to the hepatocyte-Ab complex. Further enzyme immunoassay studies showed that UB interferes the binding of C1q to purified anti-RHPM IgG, also in a dose-dependent manner. A dot-blot assay showed that [14C]-UB binds to C1q and human serum albumin (HSA) to a similar extent. A differential spectrum analysis of UB in the presence of C1q further confirmed that the pigment interacts with this protein. In conclusion, we demonstrated an inhibitory action of UB on complement-mediated Ab-induced hepatocytolysis, this action being evidenced at pathophysiological pigment concentrations (171 microM and higher). A direct binding of the pigment to C1q is likely involved.

A novel radioimmunoassay of 7-oxo-DHEA and its physiological levels.A novel radioimmunoassay (RIA) of unconjugated 7-oxo-dehydroepiandrosterone (7-oxo-DHEA) in human serum was developed for the first time. This steroid is an intermediate in the biosynthesis of immunomodulatory 7-hydroxylated DHEA metabolites, and has been shown to possess thermogenic properties. The method employs polyclonal rabbit antiserum to (19E)-3beta-hydroxy-7,17,19-trione-19-O-(carboxymethyloxime):BSA conjugate and a homologous radioiodinated derivative with tyrosine methyl ester. The cross reactivity of the antiserum with structurally closest 7-hydroxyepimers of DHEA was lower than 1.7%, with DHEA 0.4%, with all other related steroid less than 0.4%. The method includes ether extraction of serum (0.5 ml), followed by RIA. Its detection limit was 0.06 pmol (18 pg)/tube, the average intra- and inter-assay coefficients of variation were 4.1% and 8.3%, respectively. Mean recovery of serum spiked with 7-oxo-DHEA varied between 78.8% and 112%. Its levels in three serum pools were compared with a low-resolution gas chromatography-mass spectrometry method with satisfactory results. The method has been used for determination of 7-oxo-DHEA in serum samples of 215 subjects (91 males and 124 females) without overt endocrine disorders, aged 5-71 years. The over-all mean+/-S.D. was 0.280+/-0.227, the median 0.239 nmol/l. No significant sex differences were recorded. The only group which differed significantly from all other ones were males below 10 years, significantly lower values than in other age groups were found also in the first two age groups of females.

A novel radioimmunoassay for daidzein.A radioimmunoassay for daidzein was established, based on polyclonal antibodies against daidzein-4'-O-(carboxymethyl)ether-BSA. The sensitivity of the assay was 0.4 pg/tube; the intra- and interassay coefficients of variation varied from 4.1 to 11.5% and from 5.6 to 21.7%, respectively, depending upon the method (direct or extraction) and concentration of daidzein in the sample. The cross reactivities with other chemically related compounds, with the exception of 4'-derivatives of daidzein, were 2.4% for dihydrodaidzein, 1.3% for genistein, 1.5% for biochanin A, and 1.6% for equol, respectively. The method was used for measurement of daidzein levels in 105 normal human subjects and in three volunteers after consumption of a meal prepared from 125 g of cooked whole soybeans. The daidzein values obtained following diethyl ether extraction of human sera was only 8% of that obtained by direct radioimmunoassay. We suggest that this difference is caused by cross-reacting daidzein 4'-glucuronides and -sulfates present in serum. Using ether extraction, the basal serum levels of free daidzein were 0.11 ng/mL (0.43 nmol/L), with 14 subjects showing no detectable levels. Levels were detectable in all subjects with the direct assay with a mean value of 7.1 ng/mL (28.0 nmol/L). Peak levels were reached 4 hours after ingestion of the soybeans. The levels were 10.3 +/- 3.6 ng/mL (40.4 +/- 14.3 nmol/L) for free daidzein and 129.4 +/- 36.1 ng/mL (509 +/- 142 nmol/L) for total immunoreactive compounds. After 24 hours, the levels were still clearly distinguishable from the basal levels; the concentrations were 0.43 +/- 0.15 ng/mL (1.69 +/- 0.59 nmol/L) and 24.36 +/- 6.07 ng/mL (95.9 +/- 23.9) for free and total immunoreactive material, respectively. It is concluded that this is the first immunoassay for a phytoestrogen in human biological fluids, and for the first time serial assays of unconjugated daidzein in plasma have been possible.

An antiserum to idazoxan recognizes an immunoreactive substance in human serum and cerebral spinal fluid which is not agmatine.A polyclonal antibody was generated in rabbits to an idazoxan-albumin antigen. The anti-idazoxan antiserum had high affinity for unconjugated 3H-idazoxan (Kd of 19.8 nM) in a radio-immunoassay (RIA). Of various drugs and native molecules only idazoxan potently (Ki of 24 nM) inhibited 3H-idazoxan binding to the anti-idazoxan antibody. A few drugs weakly inhibited 3H-idazoxan binding (IC50 > 605 microM) with rank order of UK 14304 > guanabenz > cirazoline > amiloride > naphazoline. Neither agmatine, an endogenous clonidine displacing substance (CDS), catecholamines or imidazoles inhibited the binding of 3H-idazoxan to the anti-idazoxan antibody. The anti-idazoxan RIA was 4-6 fold more sensitive than an antibody to para-amino clonidine. The CDS detected by ligand displacement from bovine brain dose-dependently inhibited 3H-idazoxan binding. This immunoreactive (ir-) CDS activity was present in human (0.9-4.1 U/ml) and rat sera (1-2 U/ml) and in the cerebro-spinal fluid of eight patients with serious disease of the central nervous system, but not in controls. We conclude: (1) an anti-idazoxan RIA is a sensitive, selective and clinically applicable RIA for measuring ir-CDS; (2) ir-CDS is not agmatine; (3) CDS represents a family of endogenous ligands for imidazoline receptors including ir-CDS and agmatine.
