    Methods We submitted the peptide sequence QLRDSKSSDK to Abmart, Inc. (Shanghai, China), which passed their in-house,bioinformatic predictive algorithm criteria as possessing adequate antigenicity for MAb development. By contractual agreement, Abmart synthesized the peptide and used it to immunize mice and generate a panel of MAb-secreting candidate hybridomas that our laboratory screened for the desired assay functionality and speci?city. Abmart’s role was limited to MAb generation, and the company retained no intellectual property rights that could limit or otherwise control dissemination of the MAb to the scienti?c community.
