Micelle-like clusters of antibody mols. were prepd. by covalent attachment of various hydrophobic groups to the protein mols. These colloidal clusters were capable of solubilizing two hydrophobic probes, while the solubilizate:solubilizer molar ratio was dependent on the chain length of the hydrophobic groups, the degree of modification, and have, on the size of the colloidal clusters. By using a fluorescent solubilizate, it was demonstrated that the immunoclusters may have a specific recognition ability. [on SciFinder(R)]
