Chromogenic immunodetection of human serum albumin and alpha-L-fucosidase clones in a human hepatoma cDNA expression library.


A human hepatoma cDNA library was constructed in lambda gt11, a bacteriophage vector that was designed to express cDNA-encoded antigenic determinants in Escherichia coli. The cDNA expression library contained approximately 8 X 10(6) recombinant phages with an average insert size of 780 bp. The feasibility of using a chromogenic immunodetection procedure to isolate cDNA clones was proved by isolating a human serum albumin (HSA) cDNA clone. An approximately 1.0-kb cDNA clone was then isolated by screening the library with rabbit anti-human alpha-L-fucosidase antibodies. The identity of the alpha-L-fucosidase cDNA clone was confirmed by DNA sequence analysis and a comparison of the predicted amino acid sequence to the amino acid sequences of human alpha-L-fucosidase tryptic peptides.
