Clone PO 23/32 used to detect binding to inhibin α by ELISA
Molecular weight profiles of Pro-αC and inhibin A in IVF serum as determined by various assays. Samples were fractionated through an immunoaffinity/preparative PAGE/electroelution procedure prior to assay. Horizontal dashed line in the αC IFMA profile refers to the sensitivity of the assay.
