Chimpanzee Fabs against the B5 envelope glycoprotein of vaccinia virus were isolated and converted into complete mAbs with human gamma 1 heavy chain constant regions. The two mAbs (8AH8AL and 8AH7AL) displayed high binding affinities to B5 (Kd of 0.2 and 0.7 nM). The mAb 8AH8AL inhibited the spread of vaccinia virus as well as variola vir...More
