 Background & Aims: Nowadays, by advent of hybridoma technology in monoclonal antibodies production various cell markers could be evaluated in malignant and non-malignant cells. CD20, non-glycosylated phosphoprotein is as an ideal marker in leukemia and B-cell lymphoma diagnosis which is expressed on more than 95% of normal and neoplastic B-cells except for early B-cells and mature plasma. The prime aim of this study was to produce monoclonal antibody against CD20 and evaluation of specific binding to CD20 expressing cells.

 Materials & Methods: First, Balb/c mice were immunized 4 times with 100µg peptide from extracellular domain of CD20. Spleen cells of the most immune mouse were fused with SP2/0 by Poly Ethylene Glycol (PEG). The desired clones were selected for limiting dilution (L.D). Large scale of monoclonal antibodies was produced by ascetic fluid method. Monoclonal antibody was purified by Protein-A-Sepharose column affinity chromatography then confirmed by SDS-PAGE. Afterward, evaluation of specific binding of these antibodies was determined by immunological assay such as ELISA and Immunofluorescence and flowcytometry.

 Results: After cell fusion and screening, one desired monoclone achieved with absorbance about 2. Protein-A-Sepharose column affinity chromatography yielded about 5 mg of purified monoclonal antibody. The SDS-PAGE results confirmed purification of antibody. The result of ELISA, direct immunofluorescence staining and flow cytometry confirmed specific attachment to CD20.

 Conclusions: These results indicate that such monoclonal antibodies against CD20 can be used in diagnosis of CD20 in the cells surface by immunological assay such as ELISA and Immunofluorescence and flowcytometry.
