Microcystin-LR (MC-LR) is one of the most common biotoxin that pollutes water and agricultural products. The study aims to obtain the high sensitive anti-MC-LR single-chain antibody (scFv) for detecting MC-LR. Here, a MC-LR-immunized rabbit phage display scFv library with its capacity of 3.26 × 10 CFU/mL was constructed and used for anti-MC-LR phage scFv particles screening. After four rounds of biopanning, 18 positives were isolated and identified successfully. The most positive scFv (RscFv3) was expressed in Escherichia coli HB2151 and purified with a concentration of 796.7 μg/mL, and the purified anti-MC-LR polyclonal antibodies (PAbs) were 3.6 mg/mL. The PAbs and scFv based indirect competitive enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (IC-ELISAs) were established for MC-LR and its analogues, and the results showed they all had high sensitive for MC-LR with detection limits of 0.03 and 0.05 μg/L, and had strong cross-reactivity for MC-RR, MC-WR and MC-YR, respectively. The average recovery rate was 91.9% with coefficient of variation <6.8% for scFv-based IC-ELISA to detect MC-LR spiked in water samples, which met the requirement of indoor testing. The present results indicate that we have obtained a high sensitive anti-MC-LR scFv by the MC-LR-immunized phage library construction and screening, and the scFv-based IC-ELISA can be used for monitoring MC-LR in water samples.

Works consisting of bibliographic records, created according to specific and uniform principles of construction and under the control of an authority file, which describe the materials contained in a collection, library, or group of libraries. Catalogs include also lists of materials prepared for a particular purpose, such as exhibition catalogs, sales catalogs, garden catalogs, medical supply catalogs.

The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.
Bacteriophages whose genetic material is RNA, which is single-stranded in all except the Pseudomonas phage phi 6 (BACTERIOPHAGE PHI 6). All RNA phages infect their host bacteria via the host's surface pili. Some frequently encountered RNA phages are: BF23, F2, R17, fr, PhiCb5, PhiCb12r, PhiCb8r, PhiCb23r, 7s, PP7, Q beta phage, MS2 phage, and BACTERIOPHAGE PHI 6.
