Abstract

Clearance of antibodies (Ab’s) from cell surfaces has been studied in vitro with two IgG monoclonal Ab’s (11/160 and 12/FCIII) directed against surface antigens of the rat fibrosarcoma HSN.TC. When Ab-coated HSN.TC cells were incubated in fresh medium at 37°, 12/FCIII was lost rapidly (8% of the initial binding remaining after 2 h), whereas 11/160 was cleared relatively slowly (85% of the initial binding remaining after 10 h). Gel-filtration analysis of radiolabelled Ab shed into the supernatant medium over the first 5 h showed the majority (>80%) of the recovered activity as intact IgG, with the remainder as low-mol. wt. fragments. Loss of radiolabelled monoclonal Ab from the cells was progressively inhibited by treatment of monoclonal-Ab-coated cells with increasing concentrations of antiglobulin before incubation at 37°, and was accompanied by a greater output of degraded fragments.
