High-molecular-weight glycoproteins are the major carriers of the carbohydrate differentiation antigens I, i and SSEA-1 of mouse teratocarcinoma cells.

Abstract

The carriers of the carbohydrate differentiation antigens I, i and SSEA-1 were investigated in embryonal carcinoma cell lines of mouse and differentiated cell lines derived from them. Glycoproteins were studied by immunostaining ('Western blotting') of total cell lysates and immunoprecipitation from lysates of galactose oxidase/NaB3H4-labelled cells; glycolipids were investigated by immunostaining of thin layer chromatograms. The antigenic activities detected by immunofluorescence of cell smears were reflected in the antigenicities of high-molecular-weight glycoproteins. These were polydisperse and markedly susceptible to digestion with endo-beta-galactosidase. Only the I antigen was detected on minor glycolipids. These observations indicate that glycoproteins rather than glycolipids are the major carriers of carbohydrate differentiation antigens I, i and SSEA-1 in the teratocarcinoma cell lines.
