Three monoclonal antibodies to avian lipoprotein lipase have been isolated by fusing spleen cells from immunized BALB/c mice with myeloma P3X-63 Ag 8. The antibodies were detected by their ability to bind immobilized lipoprotein lipase in enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and by immunoprecipitation of purified enzyme in the presence of second (rabbit anti-mouse) antibodies. Two of these antibodies, CAL1-7 and CAL1-11, inhibited catalytic activity, whereas with CAL1-2 interaction with lipoprotein lipase could be demonstrated only in ELISA and in Western blot assays following denaturation of the enzyme with sodium dodecyl sulfate. An immunoadsorbent column was prepared by coupling immunopurified CAL1-11 to Sepharose-4B. When acetone powder extracts of adipose tissue were applied on the column, 70% of the catalytic activity bound to the matrix. Effective elution was achieved with 1.8 M NaCl, 40% glycerol, 5% acetone, 20 mM Chaps (3[(3-holamidopropyl)dimethylammonio]propanesulfonate), 0.5 mM EDTA, 1 mM phosphate (pH 6.5). After concentration of the active fractions on a heparin-Sepharose 4B column, the purified enzyme was obtained with an overall recovery of 25%. Sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis demonstrates that the preparation is homogeneous with a major band at Mr 60900. Thus, avian adipose lipoprotein lipase has been purified by a one-step immunoaffinity followed by a concentrating step on heparin-Sepharose 4B.
