Identification and characterization of an endothelial, cell-specific antigen with a monoclonal antibody.

The purpose of these studies was to use monoclonal antibodies to identify and characterize plasma membrane components unique to the vascular endothelium. Our assumption is that such components may perform some of the specialized functions of the endothelium and, by their identification with antibody probes, we may be able to study further their function and… CONTINUE READING
