Expression of glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol-linked glycoproteins in blood cells from paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria patients: a flow cytometry study using CD55, CD58 and CD59 monoclonal antibodies.


We used CD55 and CD59 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) for the investigation of peripheral blood cells from sixteen patients with paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria (PNH) by flow cytometry. Mixed-field populations of erythrocytes, platelets, monocytes or granulocytes were visualized in all cases but, due to the extended half-life of unaltered erythrocytes and… (More)
