boost immunization - (Apr/13/2009 )

What is the max time for boost immunization? (for new zelland rabbit to produce polyclonal antibody with GST tagged protein)
Is the age of rabbit important in terms of antibody production?


age of the animal is definitely important for immunization. 6-8 weeks in case of mice. i am not sure about rabbit.
Regarding booster dose, boosters can be given any time before senescence due to the presence of memory cells
all the best


Thanks a lot. I learned that 10-16 weeks rabbits are suitable for immunization.
