Chemical Immunology Research Center, Department of Pathology, University of Texas, Houston Medical School, USA.


A single-chain fragment containing antibody V domains (scFv) isolated from a lupus antibody library displayed the ability to bind gp120 and the conserved gp120 determinant composed of residues 421-436. The scFv neutralized R5 and X4-dependent HIV-1 strains from clades B, C, and D. The lupus repertoire may be useful as a source of neutralizing antibodies to HIV.
