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)
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)
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)
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)
To elucidate the origin and renewal kinetics of peritoneal macrophages, as a typical example of the mononuclear phagocytic system, syngeneic rats were treated with tritiated thymidine [3H]TdR and leucocytes were transferred to unlabelled recipients over a bilateral arteriovenous shunt. Labelled and unlabelled monocytes were evenly distributed in both(More)
Angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy with dysproteinemia (AILD) is defined in the current lymphoma classifications as a T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. However, in approximately one third of the cases of this lymphoproliferative disease rearrangements of T-cell receptor (TCR) genes indicating clonal expansion of T cells are not detectable. It is currently(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)
Among the four subtypes of Hodgkin disease (HD), lymphocyte-predominant (LP) HD is now generally considered as a separate entity. The B cell nature of the typical Hodgkin and Reed-Sternberg (HRS) cells and their variants (L and H, lymphocytic and histiocytic cells) in LP HD has long been suspected, but the question of whether these cells represent a true(More)
