To develop zearalenone-specific monoclonal antibodies, hybridoma cells were produced by fusion of myeloma cells $(P3{\times}63Ag\;V653)$ and spleen cells from BALB/c female mice immunized with zearalenone-oxime coupled to bovine serum albumin (BSA). After screening of antibody titer of them with a sandwich type enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), 5 hybridomas which could produced monoclonal antibodies with a high affinity for zearalenone were selected. The monoclonal antibody produced by Z-2-M26 hybridoma exhibited the high sensitivity to zearalenone and a little cross-reactivity to ${\alpha}-zearalenol$ (11%), but did not react with ${\beta}-zearalenol,\;{\alpha}-zearalenol,\;{\beta}-zearalenol$ and DON. In conclusion, the developed monoclonal antibody appeared to be a very promising immunoreagent for the future development of a specific and sensitive quantitative ELISA for zearalenone.
