Expression of the CDw75 (beta-galactoside alpha 2,6-sialyltransferase) antigen on normal blood cells and in B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukaemia.

Using monoclonal antibodies (mAb) characterized at the last International Workshop on Human Leucocyte Antigens, we examined the expression of CDw75 antigens (beta-galactoside alpha 2,6-sialyltransferase) on normal peripheral blood cells and on cells from patients with B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). The mAb used (HH2, EBU.65, EBU.141 and OKB4… (More)
