Porcine platelet antigens recognized by human xenoreactive natural antibodies.


Hyperacute xenograft rejection of porcine organs by primates is initiated by the binding of recipient natural antibodies to endothelium in the donor organ. We showed previously that human natural antibodies recognize 3 porcine endothelial cell glycoproteins with molecular masses of 115 kDa, 125 kDa, and 135 kDa; we called the glycoproteins gp115/135. We… (More)
