To develop monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) recognizing drug-mediated tumor antigens on a chemically xenogenized murine lymphoma, hybridomas were constructed with splenocytes from histocompatible mice hyperimmunized with L5178Y cells antigenically altered by triazene treatment in vivo (clone D, derived from a polyclonal L5178Y/DTIC subline). Screening of supernatants with parental and xenogenized cells showed that nine MAbs displayed exclusive or preferential reactivity with clone D cells as detected by immunofluorescence, and failed, as a rule, to bind normal or unrelated malignant cells of the same or different haplotype. Moreover, no reactivity was displayed to the triazene-xenogenized variants of antigenically unrelated tumors. All nine MAbs, however, were capable of binding a panel of L5178Y/DTIC clones in addition to clone D. When the ability of these antibodies to interfere with the development of cell-mediated immunity to clone D cells in vitro was tested, it was found that the proliferative reaction and generation of cytolytic activity by syngeneic lymphocytes were inhibited by addition of several MAbs to the tumor--lymphocyte co-cultures.

Abstract

To develop monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) recognizing drug-mediated tumor antigens on a chemically xenogenized murine lymphoma, hybridomas were constructed with splenocytes from histocompatible mice hyperimmunized with L5178Y cells antigenically altered by triazene treatment in vivo (clone D, derived from a polyclonal L5178Y/DTIC subline). Screening of supernatants with parental and xenogenized cells showed that nine MAbs displayed exclusive or preferential reactivity with clone D cells as detected by immunofluorescence, and failed, as a rule, to bind normal or unrelated malignant cells of the same or different haplotype. Moreover, no reactivity was displayed to the triazene-xenogenized variants of antigenically unrelated tumors. All nine MAbs, however, were capable of binding a panel of L5178Y/DTIC clones in addition to clone D. When the ability of these antibodies to interfere with the development of cell-mediated immunity to clone D cells in vitro was tested, it was found that the proliferative reaction and generation of cytolytic activity by syngeneic lymphocytes were inhibited by addition of several MAbs to the tumor--lymphocyte co-cultures.
