Epitope masking of rat esophageal carcinoma tumor-associated antigen by certain coexisting glycolipid and phospholipid molecules: a potential mechanism for tumor cell escape from the host immune responses


A monoclonal antibody (mAb-5G) produced against a tumorigenic rat esophageal cell line, B2T, was shown to react specifically with a unique glycolipid antigen expressed on the cell surface of tumorigenic and certain non-tumorigenic, immortalized rat esophageal cell lines [Cancer Immunol Immunother 36: 94 (1993)]. In enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay… (More)
