The replacement of serum in hybridoma cultures is considered. The focus is on the effects of serum-free media on hybridoma growth and monoclonal antibody secretion. Comparative literature data with serum supplemented cultures are discussed with an analysis of serum-free formulations and selection rules for the serum-free ingredients. In general, serum-free(More)
The potential tumor-recognizing capacity of B cells infiltrating human breast carcinoma is an important aspect of breast cancer biology. As an experimental system, we used human medullary breast carcinoma because of its heavy B lymphocytic infiltration paralleled to a relatively better prognosis. Ig-rearranged V region V(H)-J(H), Vkappa-Jkappa, and(More)
The authors performed a variety of lymphocyte-stimulation tests and quantified several lymphocyte subpopulations in 73 healthy controls and 72 patients with advanced cancer who were no longer receiving anticancer therapy. As a group, cancer patients had fewer lymphocytes and helper cells, but a greater proportion of suppressor cells and Ia+ cells than(More)
Rabbits were immunized with hybrids constructed with human and murine cells. Serological and immunochemical studies showed that xenoantiserum 1595 is operationally specific for HLA-A2, xenoantisera 0806 and 0746 for HLA-A3 and xenoantiserum 0745 for HLA-1327. The Fab2 blocking assay suggests a spatial relationship between allotypic determinants recognized(More)
Serological and immunochemical studies showed that monoclonal antibody Q2/70 (MoAb Q2/70), produced by the hybridoma technique, is specific for human Ia-like antigens. This antibody recognizes an antigenic determinant which is different from those defining the serologic polymorphism of Ia-like antigens, and is expressed on subsets of human Ia-like molecules(More)
Monoclonal antibodies specific to HLA antigens and the fluorescence-activated cell sorter were used to analyze the changes in the density of human histocompatibility antigens HLA-A,B and HLA-DR on the surface of synchronously growing WI-L2 cells (a human B cell line) progressing through the cell cycle. The WI-L2 cells were synchronized by density-dependent(More)
Incubation of cultured human melanoma cells with human leukocyte interferon did not change the expression of melanoma-associated antigens (MAA) recognized by monoclonal antibodies and of Ia-like antigens but significantly increased the expression of HLA-A,B antigens and of beta 2-microglobulin (beta 2-mu). The effect is dependent on the dose of interferon(More)
A micro enzyme-linked immunoassay (EIA) has been developed for the rapid and sensitive detection of either human or mouse monoclonal antibodies reactive with cell bound antigens. Whole intact cells are immobilized onto 96-well flat bottom microtiter plates by drying in an oven at 37 degrees C overnight prior to the start of the assay. This method of(More)
Neutral amino acid (isoleucine, leucine, and valine) transport was monitored in synchronous populations of WIL-2 cells, a diploid human lymphoblastoid B cell line. Cells were synchronized by either the double thymidine block technique or by density-dependent arrest in G1. Cells synchronized by these methods showed up to a 66% decrease in amino acid(More)
A micro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) utilizing a filtration method has been developed which allows the rapid, simple, and sensitive detection of monoclonal antibodies that recognize either soluble or cell surface antigens. This assay involves the immobilization of target cells (or soluble antigen) onto glass fiber filter discs followed by an(More)
