Flow chart of the capture-lift screening procedure. Nitrocellulose filters are incubated with a capture reagent (1), then the remaining nonspecific binding sites on the filter are blocked (2). A bacterial lawn is infected with the Ab-phage library (3) and is overlaid with the pretreated nitrocellulose filter for 12–14 h (4). The filter is removed and probed with labeled Ag(s) and the appropriate detection reagent (5). In the example in this figure, three distinct Fabs are reactive with target A, but two are crossreactive with targets B and C. The developed filter is aligned with the agar plate to isolate the clone(s) of interest specifically reactive with target A (6).
Briefly, the nitrocellulose filters are coated with an Ab capture
reagent, such as a polyclonal anti-κ-chain Ab (for human Fabs) and
the remaining protein-binding sites are blocked prior to performing
the plaque lift ( Fig.
