Serological and immunochemical studies showed that monoclonal antibody Q2/70 (MoAb Q2/70), produced by the hybridoma technique, is specific for human Ia-like antigens. This antibody recognizes an antigenic determinant which is different from those defining the serologic polymorphism of Ia-like antigens, and is expressed on subsets of human Ia-like molecules and on lymphoid cells from other species. MoAb Q2/70 inhibits unidirectional MLRs* between allogenic human lymphocytes, but not between murine and human lymphocytes. In ADCC* assays. MoAb Q2/70 mediates lysis of cultured human B lymphoid cells RPMI 4098, effected by murine splenocytes. The antibody is suitable to isolate immunologically functional B lymphocytes from human peripheral blood.
