Abstract

Two monoclonal antibodies (OKT27 and OKT27b) have been produced that react with distinct epitopes of a 95-kDa peptide. The T27 antigen is widely distributed, being expressed on B lymphocytes, monocytes, and adult T-leukemic cells but not on polymorphonuclear leukocytes or platelets. There was a low level of T27 expression on resting T cells that increased on T-cell activation. In preliminary studies, the OKT27b antibody coprecipitated a 55-kDa peptide, as well as the 95-kDa peptide, from the radiolabeled cells of the HuT 102B2 cell line. Preclearance with anti-Tac, a monoclonal antibody to the 55-kDa peptide of the multichain interleukin 2 receptor, removed the 55-kDa but not the 95-kDa peptide from subsequent OKT27b immunoprecipitates of HuT 102B2 extracts, suggesting the possibility that the T27 peptide was associated with the Tac peptide. However, the precipitation of the p55 Tac peptide by OKT27b was quite inconsistent. Thus, additional information was sought using a flow cytometric energy transfer technique to provide a physical estimation of the proximity between the Tac and the T27 peptides. The flow cytometric version of the fluorescence resonance energy transfer technique permits the determination of inter- and intramolecular distances at 2- to 10-nm levels on a cell-by-cell basis. Using this approach, there was a mean energy transfer of 7.3% with HuT 102B2 cells when fluorescein isothiocyanate anti-Tac served as the donor and tetramethylrhodamine isothiocyanate OKT27 served as the acceptor. In contrast, there was no energy transfer in comparable studies observed when fluorescein anti-Tac and rhodamine anti-transferrin receptor antibodies were used. These observations support the conclusion that there is a close nonrandom proximity in HuT 102B2 cells between the 95-kDa peptide identified by the OKT27 monoclonal antibody and the p55 Tac peptide of the multichain interleukin 2 receptor.
