Abstract

In the present study we evaluated the reactivity of monoclonal cytotoxic antibodies directed against myeloid differentiation antigens with hemopoietic precursor cells. VIM-D5 and VIM-2 inhibit the proliferation of clusters and colony formation after seven days of incubation. Day-14 CFU-GM are not affected by these antibodies. After complement-mediated cytolysis with VIM-2, the number of BFU-e was significantly reduced; however, this effect was largely abrogated by addition of leukocyte-conditioned medium to the cultures as an exogenous source of burst-promoting activity. Furthermore, the maturation of myeloid progenitor cells has been examined by delayed treatment with VIM-D5 and complement during the in vitro culture period. In these experiments a different maturation behavior of day-7 and day-14 CFU-GM was demonstrated. To study whether a cryptic carbohydrate structure is present on more immature CFU-GM, the effect of neuraminidase treatment of myeloid progenitor cells on reactivity with VIM-D5 was tested.
