Expression of T-lymphoblast-encoded HLA-DR, MT, and SB antigens on human T-B lymphoblast hybrids.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The Ia-like antigens of hybrids of the B-lymphoblastoid cell line (B-LCL) WI-L2 and a subline of the T-lymphoblastoid cell line (T-LCL) HSB were examined. Antigens of the HLA-DR and MT series were analyzed by indirect immunofluorescence with chimpanzee anti-DR sera and monoclonal antibodies, and antigens of the SB series were analyzed by primed lymphocyte typing (PLT). The WI-L2 X HSB hybrids expressed antigens of each series not found on either parent cell. In each case, the novel antigens were indistinguishable from those found on SB, a B-LCL established from the same individual as HSB, and are thus presumably HSB encoded.
