Rabbit antiserum against Daudi-cell membrane fractions detects cell surface antigens present on subpopulations of human lymphocytes

Journal Article --- Old month value: May
An antiserum was produced by immunization of rabbits with membrane preparations of a human lymphoblastoid B cell line, Daudi. After absorption with a human endometrial carcinoma cell line, this antiserum appeared to be specific for antigen(s) present on adult and fetal thymocytes as well as on tonsillar lymphocytes but absent, or present in very small amounts, on normal or phytohemagglutinin- (PHA) stimulated peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL). When T and B cell-enriched fractions from tonsillar lymphocytes were tested with the anti-Daudi serum, the reactivity was equally distributed in each population. Among 13 human lymphoblastoid cell lines tested, reactivity was demonstrated on three out of four T cell lines, and on four out of nine B cell lines. The positive reacting B cell lines were derived from two African and two American Burkitt lymphomas. The antigen(s) described does not seem to be related either to human Ia-type antigens or to Epstein-Barr virus-associated antigens because these antigens are not present on fetal or adult thymocytes. Reciprocal absorption experiments indicate that this anti-Daudi serum detects the same antigenic structures present on certain subpopulations of T and B lymphocytes.
