The reactivity of a mAb (M16) raised against a small cell lung carcinoma line is described. M16 identifies a surface antigen expressed on cells of neuroectodermal origin following activation, as well as neoplastic transformation. M16 antigen expression is increased on retinoblastoma and neuroblastoma cell lines upon 'in vitro' stimulation and it is induced(More)
