A diploid expression of class I and class II human leukocyte antigens (HLA) has been found in purified spermatozoa by using double fluorescence labeling cytofluorometry and relevant monoclonal antibodies; this expression has been confirmed for the first time by the analysis of specific HLA mRNA and metabolic 35S labeling followed by immunoprecipitation, which demonstrates an active ongoing translation of HLA proteins in germinal cells. Long-living mRNA coming from diploid germinal cells may be… CONTINUE READING
