Patterns of antigenic expression on human monocytes as defined by monoclonal antibodies.


A series of seven monoclonal antibodies directed at determinants on human peripheral blood monocytes were produced and characterized. The antibodies were separated into three groups based on cell distribution and percentages of monocytes bearing antigen. Hybridoma antibodies, termed OKM1, OKM9, and OKM10, recognized antigen(s) expressed on the majority of adherent monocytes, null cells, and granulocytes. The second group, comprising OKM5 and OKM8, reacted with most adherent monocytes and platelets. OKM3 and OKM6, comprising a third group of antibodies, reacted with a subpopulation of adherent monocytes and platelets. OKM antibodies were not expressed on lymphocytes, thymocytes, and lymphoblastoid cells, with the exception of OKM3 which reacted with three B-cell lines. SDS gels of immunoprecipitates formed with OKM antibodies yielded the following tentative molecular weight results: OKM1 and OKM9 antigens appeared to be 160,000 (nonreduced) and 170,000 (reduced); OKM10 precipitated two polypeptides of 170,000 and 115,000 (reduced); OKM5 and OKM8 precipitated a single polypeptide of 88,000 (reduced, nonreduced); OKM6 antigen appeared to be 116,000 (nonreduced) and 130,000 (reduced).
