Three hundred and seventy seven commercially available monoclonal antibodies (mAb) were tested for their cross-reactivity with rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) peripheral blood cells. These antibodies were collected by the animal homologue section of the HLDA8 Workshop in order to assign their potential applicability for in vitro assays. Reactivity of each mAb with lymphocyte, monocyte and granulocyte populations obtained from peripheral blood of adult rhesus macaques was evaluated. Single-colour flow cytometry and indirect labeling method was used in first-round screening. Based on their reactivity with rhesus macaque cells 57 positive mAb were selected for second-round testing. Multi-colour flow cytometry and combinations of direct and indirect labeling was used to compare the reactivity of the respective mAb. In addition, reference reagents known to react with rhesus macaque CD3, CD20 and CD56 were used to further characterization of the reactivity of the selected 57 mAb on peripheral blood cells.
