them, which arc reactive with a highly conserved epitope present on potyviruses and insignificantly reactive with other plant viruses, as well methods of using these monoclonal antibodies to detect potyviruses.

Novel peptide fragments of tissue plasminogen activator are described which have activity for inhibiting (a) the binding oftPA to human endothelial cells, and (b) the inactivation of tPA by plasminogen activator inhibitor-I (PAl-l). Six peptides or peptide amides with these activities have the sequences, numbered according to the native protein: tPA (31-55), tPA (81-105), tPA (181-205), tPA (301-325), tPA (451-475, and tPA (531-555). It is hoped that small, synthesizeable molecules which prevent the inactivation of tPA by PAI-I may provide a means for improving thc efficacy of therapeutically administered tPA or for reducing the tendency of patients with elevated plasma PAI-I concentrations to form fibrin clots.
HUMAN MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES AGAINST CYTOMEGALOVIRUS AND PROCESS FOR PRODUCING SAME Yasuhiko Masuho, Toru Sugano, Yoh-ichi Matsumoto, Shigeki Fujinaga, Tokyo, Japan assigned to Teijin Ltd Human monoclonal antibodies against cytomegalovirus. These antibodies can be advantageously used as a diagnostic, or preventive and remedy for cytomegalovirus infectious diseases.

IMMOBILIZE MOLECULAR BINDING PARTNERS TO CONTACT ACTIVATING SUPPORTS Marvin A Motsenbocker Molecular binding partners such as antibodies and haptens are immobilized to support materials that have the property of contact activation of blood protein coagulation. A binding partner is attached to a surface-active protein carrier and the resulting conjugate noncovalently adsorbs onto the surface of the support. The method provides for diagnostic assays of greater sensitivity and convenience.
