Abstract: In order to determine the nature of the antigenic and functional determinants of streptokinase (SK), we produced monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) by immunizing A/J mice with native SK protein. By virtue of their differential binding to a large panel of recombinant SK truncated proteins, and their effect on the formation of functional SK-plasminogen activator complex (SKPAC), these MAbs were found to recognize 6 unique and minimally overlapping epitopes on the SK protein. The fine epitope specificity of the anti-SK…
