Rabbit antibodies against small peptides may be composed by subpopulations recognizing different epitopes made likely by few aminoacids. This explains the frequent crossreactivity of antipeptide antibodies with unrelated peptides. A suitable use of immunoadsorbents is suggested to obtain truly specific antibodies able to react with restricted amino acid sequences.
