A rapid and simple dual enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was developed to quantitate the relative frequency of monoclonal antibodies produced against Pneumocystis carinii glycoprotein A (gpA) or other antigens of P. carinii after immunization with whole organisms. In BALB/cj mice, P. carinii gpA was clearly the immunodominant antigen, with a quarter of all hybridomas secreting antibody directed against this molecule.
