The CB12 monoclonal antibody, which reacts with a molecule expressed on monocytes, was characterized using human embryonic material as immunizer. Analysis of the monoclonal antibody at the phenotypic, molecular, and functional levels indicates that its reactivity is restricted to circulating monocytes and their precursors in the bone marrow, whereas it is undetectable on tissue macrophages. CB12 displays a pattern of reactivity compatible with that of a marker of monocyte differentiation. Preliminary data indicate a possible receptor role for the CB12 molecule.

Abstract

The CB12 monoclonal antibody, which reacts with a molecule expressed on monocytes, was characterized using human embryonic material as immunizer. Analysis of the monoclonal antibody at the phenotypic, molecular, and functional levels indicates that its reactivity is restricted to circulating monocytes and their precursors in the bone marrow, whereas it is undetectable on tissue macrophages. CB12 displays a pattern of reactivity compatible with that of a marker of monocyte differentiation. Preliminary data indicate a possible receptor role for the CB12 molecule.
