Related to Fab fragment: Fc fragment, phage conversion


A manufacturing plant that makes semiconductor devices. Many chips are created by "fabless" companies that take their tested designs to a fab for production. Examples of fabs are Intel, Samsung, Renesas (Hitachi-Mitsubishi merger), Texas Instruments, Toshiba, Infineon, STMicroelectronics, NEC, Freescale and Philips.

We suggest that these four MAbs recognize epitope (s) containing the differentiating amino acids located in CH2 and/ or CH3 domains common to IgGl, 2 and 4 subclasses, but not CH1 domain, because our results showed no reactivity of these MAbs with Fab fragments of IgG 1 molecules (Figures 3 and 5).
Although site-specific bioconjugation was made possible through recombinant Fab fragment production, the Fab fragments were not labeled through the thiol groups in the current study because one chelate per Fab fragment did not yield satisfactory signals.
