Monoclonal antibodies 4F2, A3D8, and A1G3, directed against cell surface antigens present on subsets of human cells, were used to identify the human chromosome regions that code for the antigenic determinants. Human fibroblasts expressed all three antigens, and no cross-reactivity with Chinese hamster or mouse cells was found. Fourteen rodent x human somatic cell hybrids, derived from six different human donors and from two different Chinese hamster and one mouse cell line, were studied simultaneously for human chromosome content and for antibody binding as detected by indirect immunofluorescence. Concordancy with binding of all three antibodies was observed only for human chromosome 11. All other chromosomes were excluded by three or more discordant hybrid clones. Data from six hybrids containing three different regions of chromosome 11 indicate that it is the long arm of chromosome 11 which is both necessary and sufficient for expression of the human antigen defined by 4F2 while the antigen(s) defined by A3D8 and A1G3 map to short arm.
