The advances in the study of human leukocyte differentiation and its immunobiological function have been greatly facilitated by developments in four areas of methodology: first by the establishment of stable permanent leukemia cell lines of various origins, secondly by the development of numerous specific heterologous antibodies to various leukocyte differentiation antigens, thirdly by the introduction of many functional assays of both hematopoietic progenitor cells and mature leukocyte subsets, and fourthly by the development of recombinant DNA technology.
