Biology and Immunology of Human Carcinoma Cell Populations
The rationale for the studies overviewed here was to utilize membrane-enriched extracts of human metastatic mammary tumor cells as immunogens in an attempt to generate and characterize monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) reactive with determinants that would be maintained on primary as well as metastatic human mammary carcinoma cells. Multiple assays have been employed to reveal the range of reactivities and diversity of the various antibodies.
