Abstract

The ratio of hapten and bovine serum albumin in an antigenconjugate was determined by matrix-assisted laserdesorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry. Ahybridoma secreting monoclonal antibody against ginsenosideRg1 was produced by fusing sprenocytes immunized with aginsenoside Rg1-bovine serum albumin conjugate withHAT-sensitive mouse myeloma cell line, P3-X63-Ag8-653. A very smallcross-reaction appeared with ginsenoside Re. The full measuringrange of the assay extends from 0.3 μg ml-1 to 10 μg ml-1 ofginsenoside Rg1.
