Monoclonal antibodies block the bromelain-mediated release of human placental alkaline phosphatase from cultured cancer cells

Abstract: Certain monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) to human placental alkaline phosphatasc (PLAP) block bromelain cleavage of a 2--kDa segment from each of the two polypeptide chains of PLAP. These mAbs serve the release of PLAP from cultured cancer cell surfaces by bromelain. Such proteolysis-blocking mAbs serve as tools to specifically modify the molecular topography of cell surfaces by protease treatment.
