Additional information


Using L-Kynurenine -BSA conjugate (KYNU-BSA), antibody specificity was performed by using an ELISA test by competition experiments:

L-Kynurenine-BSA Kd around 10-8 M very high affinity and specificity

Low affinity or no crossreactivity with close competitors:

Competitors Affinity compared to KYNU-BSA
D-Kynurenine-BSA 7 times lower high affinity
Picolinic Acid-PC 3 000 times lower low affinity
Kynurenic acid-BSA 50 000 times lower no crossreactivity
3-Hydroxy-Kynurenine-BSA 50 000 times lower no crossreactivity
Xanthurenic acid-BSA 50 000 times lower no crossreactivity
Quinaldic acid-BSA 50 000 times lower no crossreactivity
L-Tryptophan-BSA 50 000 times lower no crossreactivity
Quinolinic acid-BSA 50 000 times lower no crossreactivity
Anthranilic acid-BSA 50 000 times lower no crossreactivity
L-kynurenine free 50 000 times lower no crossreactivity

The antibody recognizes the conjugated form of the small molecule, not the free form (see protocol for specific tissue preparation).

Additional Information


Monoclonal antibody was obtained after BALB/c mouse immunisation with the conjugate: L-Kynurenine-bovine serum albumin (BSA). Hybridoma clone was obtained by hybridization of spleen cells with the myeloma cell line SP2/O/Ag14

Conjugated L-Kynurenine


Synthetic L-Kynurenine conjugated to bovine serum albumin (BSA)

Species reactivity

The antibody recognizes the target in all species, vertebrates (included humans) and invertebrates, because of the universality of the small molecule


Monoclonal antibody was preadsorbed on protein carriers and purified by ammonium sulfate precipitation
