Perhaps you could clarify your question. Make a hormone out of an
antibody??? Look up the definition of each in any standard physiology
textbook or medical dictionary and ask again what you REALLY mean.
I am wondering if you are getting at anti-idiotypic antibodies, ie. an
anti-antibody to a hormone (for eg. FSH) that in fact acts like FSH (is
recognized by its receptor) and ideally, will then superovulate an
animal (or cause whatever response that hormone usually causes) ...
