Moreover, low doses of immunogen often produce antibodies with the highest affinity; conversely, higher dose Barry D. Albertson and I. Robert Swanson 15 OH HO OH HO FIGURE 8. Molecular site of conjugation on estradiol. Conjugation on carbon 17 (top, left), carbon 3 (top, right), and carbon 6 (lower) to retain immunogenicity of estradiol for the generation of a specific antibody. FIGURE 9. Immunization of a rabbit for production of steroid antibodies for RIA. 16 Chapter 1 Assay Techniques Available for the Toxicologist immunogens produce antibodies with lower affinities.

These reactions have been successfully used for steroids, for example, estradiol using the mixed anhydride, and testosterone and cortisol with carbodiimide. [From M. J. O'Sullivan, J. W. Bridges, and V. Marks, Enzyme immunoassay: A review. AnaL Clin. Biochem. ] 2. homogeneousmwhere the enzyme activity of the conjugate is influenced by the hormone-antibody, and in which a distinct step for separation of bound from free is not required. The Heterogeneous Assays 9 The basic design of several simple heterogeneous enzyme assays is shown in Figure 21 (106).

Specificity of the antibody for the antigen is influenced by heterogeneity or the absence of purely specific antibodies, crossreaction with other antigens or metabolic fragments that retain immunoreactive sites, and possible influences of the antigen-antibody reaction owing to the presence of low-molecular-weight substances that may alter the environment of the reaction (5). Cross-reactivity measurements are an index of assay specificity, that is, evaluation of the uniqueness of the antibody for a specific antigen.
