The mouse/human chimeric antibody Ch F11-39, recently generated by ourselves, shows the same high specificity and affinity for carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) as those of its parental mouse monoclonal antibody. Ch F11-39 is capable of mediating antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) with human peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL). Interleukin-2(More)
BACKGROUND No previous report has described the level of the origin of the right inferior phrenic artery (RIPA) based on an analysis of the relationships between the level of the RIPA, the celiac artery (CA), the superior mesenteric artery (SMA), and the right renal artery (RRA) in a series of cases. PURPOSE To evaluate the origin of the RIPA by(More)
Twenty-three monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) reactive with nonspecific cross-reacting antigen (NCA) were prepared and used for constructing a serological map of the NCA molecule. The MAbs were generated using purified NCA or carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) as immunogen. The MAbs could be divided into two groups: Group X, 10 clones reactive with NCA and CEA; and(More)
To reduce heterophilic antibody interference in a two-site immunoassay for carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), we utilized a human/mouse chimeric antibody to CEA as the tracer. One mouse monoclonal antibody (MAb), F82-61, which reacts with an epitope present on the domain N of CEA, was immobilized on 96-well polystyrene microtiter plates. A human/mouse chimeric(More)
The chemical nature of 25 distinct carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) epitopes, which were recognized by 57 different monoclonal antibodies and categorized into 7 groups (Groups A to G) in terms of domain structure of the CEA molecule, was analyzed and the findings obtained were compared with the results of our previous studies using recombinant CEA proteins.(More)
Antigenic reactivities of 4 purified CEA preparations and 4 different CEA-related normal antigens (NCA from lungs, NCA-2 from meconium, and NFA-1 and NFA-2 from adult feces) were comparatively analyzed with seven commercially available EIA kits [Abbott CEA-EIA Monoclonal, D-ZYME CEA, Imzyne CEA, CEA MITSUI II, CEA Roche EIA, Immunoball-CEA (N), and Glaozyme(More)
The aqueous MeOH extract of the leaves and root of Xanthocercis zambesiaca (Leguminosae) and eight structurally related nitrogen-containing sugars, fagomine (1), 4-O-beta-D-glucopyranosylfagomine (2), 3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosylfagomine (3), 3-epifagomine (4), 2,5-dideoxy-2,5-imino-D-mannitol (5), castanospermine (6), alpha-homonojirimycin (7), and(More)
Antigenic epitopes of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and non-specific cross-reacting antigen (NCA) were analysed in relation to their domain structures [domains N, I (A1-B1), II (A2-B2), III (A3-B3) and M for CEA and domains N, I (A1-B1), and M for NCA]. We reconstructed cDNAs for CEA-N, CEA-N-I, CEA-N-I-II, CEA-N-I-II-III-M (CEA-whole), NCA-N, NCA-N-I and(More)
A colorimetric microadhesion assay that allows the quantitative determination of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)-mediated homophilic cell adhesion to CEA immobilized on 96-well polyvinyl chloride plates is described. Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells transfected with a full-length CEA cDNA were used as indicator cells. After dislodging nonadherent cells,(More)
We have previously reported that a group of monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) to carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), designated Group F MAbs, are able to discriminate CEA in tumor tissues from the CEA-related normal antigens and that CEA assay systems utilizing at least one Group F MAb show the improved cancer diagnosis. In this study, we cloned the genes coding for(More)
