Despite the unique functions of dendritic cells (DC), only two cell surface antigens (CMRF-44 and CD83) with relatively restricted expression on human DC have been described to date. We describe a third mAb, CMRF-56, which recognizes another DC early activation/differentiation antigen with limited expression on other haemopoietic cell populations. Circulating blood leukocytes did not express the CMRF-56 antigen and, following either in vitro culture or activation of PBMC populations, CMRF-56… CONTINUE READING
