Identification of endothelial cell surface antigens encoded by genes other than HLA. A combined immunoprecipitation and proteomic approach for the identification of antigens recognized by antibodies against endothelial cells in transplant recipients.
It has been known for some time that transplant recipients may have antibodies to endothelial cells which are not detected on lymphocytes. However, little progress has been made in the analysis of these endothelial antigens. In the present experiments we have attempted to characterize endothelial cell surface antigens to which antibodies were produced… (More)
