Immunization of Mice:
Injections should be made at intervals of at least two weeks.. We have been using either of the two following adjuvants with success: Freund adjuvant and MPL+TDM adjuvant ( RIBI ImmunoChem Research, Inc. ), the latter being less hazardous than the first.
If monoclonal antibodies are desired, once you have a "good" polyclonal and a reliable screening method proceed to the next step.
Rabbits are immunized essentially as described above. Injections:

Special thanks to Vicki Hammond, Frank Kontgen and Maria Murphy, who contributed many of the ES cell protocols. Sections dealing with Photomicroscopy, Polyclonal and Monoclonal Antibody Production were provided by members of Gerry Rubin's Laboratory (Berkeley).
