The antigen identified by a mouse monoclonal antibody raised against human renal cancer cells is the adenosine deaminase binding protein.


The antigen recognized by a mouse monoclonal antibody (mAb S27) raised against a human renal cancer cell line has been identified as the adenosine deaminase binding protein. mAb S27 immunoprecipitates binding protein purified from a soluble fraction of human kidney. It also recognizes the mature 120,000-dalton membrane form of binding protein from [35S]methionine-labeled human fibroblasts, HepG2 cells, and the renal cancer cell line against which the antibody was raised. A rabbit polyclonal antibody raised against purified kidney binding protein completely precipitates mAb S27-reactive material from labeled membrane extracts. mAb S27 does not precipitate the initially synthesized 110,000 molecular weight precursor of binding protein in fibroblasts and recognizes only a small portion of binding protein precursor in labeled HepG2 cells suggesting that the antigenic determinant recognized by mAb S27 may be a post-translational modification present on the mature form of binding protein or that mAb S27 recognizes molecules in a certain conformation. Glycopeptides derived from purified soluble kidney binding protein or exogenously added adenosine deaminase do not inhibit the immunoprecipitation of binding protein by mAb S27, indicating that the mature oligosaccharide chains of binding protein are not the determinant recognized by mAb S27 and that bound adenosine deaminase does not mask the antigenic sites on binding protein. The fact that monoclonal antibody S27, previously shown (Ueda, R., Ogata, S., Morissey, D. M., Finstad, C. L., Szkudlavek, J., Whitmore, W. F., Oettgen, H. F., Lloyd, K. O., and Old, L. J. (1981) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U. S. A. 78, 5122-5126) to detect a cell surface antigen on cultured renal cancer cells, is directed against the adenosine deaminase binding protein confirms and extends the earlier observation (Andy, R.J., and Kornfeld, R. (1982) J. Biol. Chem. 257, 7922-7925) that binding protein is located on the cell surface.
