Patrono, G. Ciabattoni, and G. A. FitzGerald, Anal. Biochem. 155, 198 (1986). [4] RADIOIMMUNOASSAY OF 11-DEHYDROTHROMBOXANEB2 37 90% of lactone form into the open form. The hydrolysis reaction probably occurs within the dermis of the immunized animal because (a) being emulsified in Freund's adjuvant, the conjugate is slowly adsorbed within several days and (b) body temperature strongly increases the conversion rate. This particular behavior of l l-dehydro-TxB2 has two main consequences: (a) hydrolysis unmasks a strong antigenic determinant in a strategic position and the molecule attached through the C-1 terminus protrudes out of the carrier protein, thus leaving the C-11 carboxyl exposed to macrophage recognition; (b) antibody specificity will be mainly directed against this portion of the molecule, which is unique among the metabolites produced by cyclooxygenation of arachidonate.
