In order to maintain optimal stability of various functional parts of antibodies such as antigen binding sites, several approaches have been suggested.
In the cystamine-glutaraldehyde method, the aldehyde groups of glutaraldehyde bind to the amino groups of the Fab portion of the IgG molecule (i.e., the antigen binding site), so the binding of Ag to Ab might be partly hindered.
Because random chemical labeling may easily disturb the antigen binding site (12), more specific and controllable methods for derivatization of antibodies are needed.
