A murine monoclonal antibody was identified by its ability to induce a reversible antiproliferative effect on a human lymphoma cell line. Immunoprecipitation studies revealed that the antibody reacted with a 26-kilodalton cell surface protein (TAPA-1). A diverse group of human cell lines, including hematolymphoid, neuroectodermal, and mesenchymal cells,(More)
A murine mAb, 5A6 (IgG1), has been isolated by immunization with a human B lymphoma cell line and screening for growth inhibition. The antibody immunoprecipitated a single chain protein of 26 kDa from cell lysates made with Triton X-100 but additional proteins were precipitated when cell lysates were made with the milder detergent CHAPS(More)
Using the fluorescence-activated cell sorter (FACS), we have investigated the Ig isotypes present on murine B cells, which can be polyclonally activated by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in low cell density cultures. The LPS response was partly inhibited as a result of staining with anti-IgD and anti-IgM reagents, but not with anti-IgG reagents. The IgM+, IgD+,(More)
A novel 42,000 dalton antigen (MB-1) expressed by mature human B cells in blood and tonsil was identified and characterized by utilizing a hybridoma monoclonal antibody. A comparison of MB-1 with other known B cell antigens suggests that the MB-1 antigen has not been previously identified. From one-and two-color immunofluorescence studies, it appears that(More)
An in vitro line of the B cell tumor BCL1 was developed. The cell line carried u-, S-, and A-chains on the cell surface as judged by analysis of surface iodinated proteins but did not secret Ig. ASfter stimulation with LPS, limpid A, or bacterial lipoprotein, 20 to 40% of the tumor cells matured to IgM secretors when detected in a plaque assay. Two other(More)
We have investigated the relationship between IgG secretion and cell proliferation after polyclonal activation of murine spleen cells with lipopolysaccharide (LPS). It was found that IgG secretion was optimal when cells proliferated extensively. Under those conditions, DNA synthesis commenced 8 to 12 hr after exposure to LPS. Increased proliferative(More)
Murine monoclonal antibodies (MAB) against the idiotype (Id) of B lymphocyte malignancies are powerful reagents for the study of these diseases, and are potentially useful for treatment. Different strategies for the production of these anti-Id MAB have been compared. Initially, the Id Ig from nonsecreting B cell tumors was "rescued" by human X mouse or(More)
A growing body of research provides evidence that quality early childhood experiences can affect a host of life outcomes. Equally well documented is the variation in the quality of prekindergarten programs (pre-K) offered to children. In this study I employ a fuzzy regression discontinuity approach to evaluate the efficacy of Transitional Kindergarten (TK)(More)
