Abstract Tetanus toxoid was used as a model antigen for the immunization of Macaca fascicularis. Using peripheral blood as a template, specific Fab-encoding genes were amplified by PCR on the fourth day after the final boost, and cloned in a phagemidic vector (pComb3X) as a small immune library (5 x 10(5) clones). A high-affinity Fab (Kd = 4 x 10(-10) M), 6-ATT, was isolated from this library by panning. The genes encoding 6-ATT were found to be similar to human immunoglobulin germline genes, and were assigned to subgroups of human V, (D) or J genes by IMGT/V-QUEST. Overall, the Fab variable domain framework regions were 93\% identical to the representative genes and alleles of the human subgroups, this level of identity being similar to that between genes of the same human subgroup. This strategy could be used for the isolation of high-affinity, human-like Fab fragments directed against numerous antigens.
