Homogenous IgA monomers, dimers, trimers and tetramers from the same IgA myeloma serum.

Author information

Unit of Experimental Medicine, Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium.


Starting from two IgA1 myeloma sera, the isolation of monoclonal monomeric, dimeric, trimeric and tetrameric IgA in a high state of purity and size homogeneity for each serum is described. The method combined repetitive gel filtrations on Ultrogel AcA22 with affinity chromatography on Jacalin-Sepharose. These various forms of pure polymeric IgA obtained from the same monoclonal IgA should allow a precise comparison of their respective structure and reactivity with different IgA-binding proteins, such as IgA Fc-receptors, the polymeric Ig receptor, and lectins.
