Unusual stage-specific embryonic antigen (TEC-4) defined by a monoclonal antibody to embryonal carcinoma cells defective in the expression of embryoglycan.


Most developmentally regulated epitopes identified on embryonal carcinoma cells and murine preimplantation embryos are associated with a glycoprotein-bound large glycan called embryoglycan. To prepare monoclonal antibodies recognizing other, less immunogenic stage-specific embryonic epitopes, we used embryoglycan-negative embryonal carcinoma cells P19XT.1.1… (More)
