The major human rhinovirus receptor has been identified with monoclonal antibodies that inhibit rhinovirus infection. These monoclonal antibodies recognize a 95 kd cell surface glycoprotein on human cells and on mouse transfectants expressing a rhinovirus binding phenotype. Purified 95 kd protein binds to rhinovirus in vitro. Protein sequence from the 95 kd(More)
We describe the first isolation of a human creatine kinase M cDNA clone and its mapping of the gene to human chromosome 19. A human creatine kinase M cDNA clone, pJN2CK-M, harboring a 1,160-bp insert, was isolated by colony hybridization with a previously sequenced chicken creatine kinase M cDNA probe. The human cDNA was used as a probe in Southern(More)
The recent cloning of complete cDNAs encoding carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and non-specific cross-reacting antigen has revealed the existence of a new gene family belonging to the immunoglobulin gene superfamily. We have reported the isolation of a partial CEA cDNA and of L-cell transfectant cell lines that express human antigens cross-reactive with(More)
We have screened a large number of isolated human genomic clones that hybridize to a cloned HLA cDNA probe for their ability to direct the synthesis of HLA-A, -B, and -C surface antigens on mouse L cells following DNA-mediated gene transfer. The surface expression of human histocompatibility antigens, monitored by indirect immunofluorescence and the(More)
We have isolated and characterized cDNAs that code for apoproteins having amino acid sequences highly similar to pregnancy-specific beta 1-glycoproteins (PS beta G). cDNAs coding for PS beta Gs, as well as the cDNA clone reported here, are members of the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) gene family. The previous localization of CEA-related genes to human(More)
We have mapped the gene which codes the species-specific determinant defined by monoclonal antibody 4F2 to human chromosome 11. All human chromosomes, except Y, were included in a group of four human-mouse hybrid lines. Hybrids heterogeneous for 4F2 antigen expression were sorted using the fluorescence-activated cell sorter (FACS) to yield populations(More)
Human genes coding cell surface molecules can be introduced into mouse host cells using a variety of somatic cell genetic techniques. Because these human gene products can be detected using indirect immunofluorescence on viable cells, the genes themselves can be monitored and manipulated using flow cytometry and sorting. In this paper, we review ways that(More)
LFA-3 is expressed on a wide variety of human cell lines, including those which have been used as recipients for gene transfer of human class I gene products, whereas a murine counterpart is either absent or significantly different such that the anti-LFA-3 monoclonal antibody (MAb) does not bind. By using a somatic cell genetic approach, we demonstrate that(More)
