hybridoma

[‚hī·brə′dō·mə]
(immunology)
A hybrid myeloma formed by fusing myeloma cells with lymphocytes that produce a specific antibody; the individual cells can be cloned, and each clone produces large amounts of identical (monoclonal) antibody.

Hybridomas were distributed among 96 wells plates containing RPMI-1640 supplemented with 20% FBS with 1x HAT, containe of glutamine, penicillin at 100 U/ml, and streptomycin at 100 [micro]g/ml antibiotic and feeder cells which were derived from saline peritoneal washes of mouse [20].
When the researchers looked at the antibodies produced by the hybridomas, they found that 28 percent of the hybridomas from spleen cells and 68 percent of those from lymph nodes produced antibodies carrying the distinctive idiotype of the foreign gene.
It is noted that hybridoma cells may contain pseudo genes and mRNAs encoding non-functional antibody chains, which might be accidentally amplified by the primer pairs intended to clone the target antibody sequences.
This might well supplant the less powerful screening method in which researchers look at only a fraction of the immune response represented by the several dozen or so antibody-producing spleen cells randomly chosen for making monoclonal antibody-producing hybridomas, Benkovic says.

According to Kresina, injection of hybridoma cells into 13 mice with the disease resulted in reduced hind-paw redness and swelling in six of the mice.
