Production of Polycolonal Antibody and Optimum Conditions in ELISA for Metalaxyl

Metalaxyl의 다클론 항체생산과 최적 ELISA 조건

A competitive indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay(ELISA) was developed to detect and quantify levels of the fungicide metalaxyl in crops. Antiserum against metalaxyl was demonstrated in rabbits immunized with metalaxyl-human serum albumin(HSA) conjugate. Metalaxyl-protein conjugate was prepared by mixed anhydride and peptide coupling method with EDC. In this assay, metalaxyl-ovalbumin(OA) was $coated(8{\mu}g/ml)$ on the microtiter plate, which was incubated for 1 hr at $4^{\circ}C$ or 4 hr at $37^{\circ}C$ with diluted antiserum(1:2,000). The optimum volume ratio of antigen and antibody mixture was 0.5: 1, which was incubated for 1 hr at $20^{\circ}C$. The detection of metalaxyl bound on the surface of wells was determined by the reaction(30 min) of antirabbit Ig G-peroxidase conjugate with its substrate.
