Two developing disciplines, recombinant DNA and monoclonal antibodies, have been at the forefront of the rapid expansion in biotechnology during the past few years. These techniques are, in fact, complementary with regard to the detailed information on the structure of biological macromolecules that they provide. The application of recombinant DNA techniques has given details of gene structure, including the existence of introns (intervening sequences), the recombination taking place during the rearrangement of genes in B-lymphocyte ontogeny, and the structure of specific transcription, RNA splicing, and translation signal sequences that were, for all practical purposes, previously unobtainable (Leder et al., 1982). On the other hand, monoclonal antibodies have made it possible to detect, isolate, and characterize new gene products as well as provide ways to study individual antigenic determinants (epitopes) on specific macromolecules in more detail (Kennett, 1981). It is evident that a more complete understanding of the relationships between gene structure and function will come more quickly as a combination of these technologies is applied to a variety of questions in cell and molecular biology. We will review applications in which monoclonal antibodies are being used to analyze details of molecular structure and how this technology interacts with recombinant DNA technology.
