As a leading manufacturer and supplier of innovative life science research tools, Creative Diagnostics continues to expand its offering of unique antigens products with the launch of the hapten. The product offers researchers a rapid and efficient approach to limitations they face with other systems.
The term hapten (half antigen) was introduced in the 1920s by Karl Landsteiner to define low molecular weight chemical reagents which, as such, will not induce immune responses. However, immune responses to haptenated macromolecular carriers (proteins) lead to the production of hapten-specific antibodies and T lymphocytes. Even though free hapten fails to induce antibody production, hapten-reactive antibodies bind to free hapten as well as to carrier-coupled hapten. The free hapten molecules, therefore, compete for antibody bound to hapten-carrier conjugates. Once bound to protein carriers, haptens form antigenic determinants that may activate the antigen receptors of B lymphocytes as well as of T lymphocytes.
Haptens, such as dinitrophenol, are small chemicals that can be bound by specific antibodies but are not immunogenic by themselves. If, however, haptens are coupled to proteins, which serve as carriers, the conjugates are able to induce antibody responses against the haptens.
“Those new antigens products reflect Creative Diagnostics’ commitment to supporting the R&D of the scientific community as we all need to solve difficulties on the road of discoveries. We’re proud to introduce such a quality product supported by extensive research, development, and validation for researchers all over the world. ” explained Dr. Jessica Waldorf, chief scientific officer of R&D department of Creative Diagnostics.
“Creative Diagnostics has a diverse portfolio of high quality antibodies and antigens, and our products are rigorously tested to meet clients’ demand in research and development. We are committed to the highest standards of product performance, and our scientists are dedicated to accelerating researchers’ discoveries.” said Dr. Randy S. Vaughn, senior researcher at Creative Diagnostics.
