The monoclonal antibody Ki-67 detects a nuclear antigen that is present only in proliferating cells. The aim of the present investigation was to clarify whether the Ki-67 nuclear antigen is restricted in its expression to certain phases of the cell cycle. All experiments consistently showed that the Ki-67 nuclear antigen is present in S, G2, and M phase,(More)
A new monoclonal antibody Ki-M1P that is raised against supernatants of detergent solubilized human lymph node tissue is described. Ki-M1P recognizes in particular monocytes and their macrophage derivatives as tested by light- and electron-microscopic immunohistochemistry. Granulocytes, dendritic cells as the accessory cells of humoral and cellular immune(More)
Relevant prognostic information can be added to the histological classification of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) by the determination of the growth fraction. In unfixed fresh tissue samples the Ki-67 antigen has proven its utility as an operational marker of proliferative activity in NHL. We have generated a monoclonal antibody directed against a(More)
A new monoclonal antibody Ki-B3 produced by a fusion with leukemic cells of a centroblastic/centrocytic lymphoma (m.l. follicular) is introduced. This antibody predominantly recognizes B cells of follicular mantle and germinal center cells, as well as plasma cells in normal lymphoid tissue. Furthermore, 80% of all low- and high-grade B cell lymphomas are(More)
Utilizing rat peritoneal macrophages as the immunogen, a new monoclonal antibody enabling differential monitoring of the mononuclear phagocyte system (MPS) by immunohistochemistry has been raised. Designated Ki-M2R, this antigen could be detected with the immune alkaline phosphatase reaction on all macrophages including those of bone marrow, lymphatic(More)
To study the distribution pattern of interleukin-6 (IL-6)-producing cells in normal human lymph nodes, we applied the in situ reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction technique. We describe a new modification of this technique for monitoring small amounts of specific nucleotide sequences in conventional paraffin sections. This technique differs in at(More)
In the immunobiological characterization of lymph node cells, sinus-lining cells (SLCs) have been given little attention mainly due to the difficulties in their recognition. Ki-M9 is a new monoclonal antibody (MAb) selected for its unique capability to visualize SLCs in human lymph nodes. The details were established by light and electron microscopy and(More)
By immunization with nuclear lysates of L428 cells, we raised a monoclonal mouse antibody, Ki-S2 (IgG1). In Western blots, this antibody recognizes a nuclear antigen with an apparent molecular mass of 100 kD, termed p100. Protein sequencing of p100 showed that this is a hitherto unknown protein. Immunohistochemical examination of cryostat and paraffin(More)
A monoclonal antibody (Ki-S1) has been raised that reacts with the nuclei of proliferating cells. The antigen recognized is resistant to formalin fixation and can be detected in frozen tissues as well as in routinely processed specimens. In immunohistochemistry, nuclear staining can be seen in those tissues and cellular compartments known to be actively(More)
The monoclonal antibody (mab) Ki-67 has been used for about 10 years, mainly in tissue sections, to monitor proliferating cells, but so far only very little is known about the proteins it recognizes. The new mabs Ki-S3 and Ki-S5 detect proliferating cells in frozen and paraffin-embedded tissues. They recognize proteins with the same molecular mass as Ki-67(More)
