High-throughput screening of cells expressing active catalytic antibody clones by flow cytometry is described. A fluorogenic retro-aldol retro-Michael substrate was designed and synthesized with incorporation of a chloromethyl moiety for intracellular retention. Hybridoma or transfected mammalian cells expressing catalytic antibody molecules could be rapidly isolated.
