Abstract

Morphologically and enzyme histochemically distinguishable tissue macrophages and stromal cells of human reactive lymph nodes were characterized by the cytoplasmic presence of the subunit A of factor XIII and by the expression of surface antigenic determinants reacting with monoclonal antibodies directed against monocyte/macrophage populations (Mo 1, Leu M3) and HLA-DR antigens. The distribution of F-XIIIa positive cells was studied on formaldehyde-fixed paraffin-embedded sections with immunoperoxidase techniques. The immunophenotype was established on cryostat sections with double immunofluorescence. α-Naphthyl acetate esterase (ANAE) reaction was carried out on these cryostat sections to identify tissue macrophages. The antibody against F-XIIIa detected histiocytes in both intra- and extra-sinusoidal locations which were ANAE+, Mo 1+, Leu M3+ and HLA-DR-. F-XIIIa was also present in fibroblast-like mesenchymal cells with the following phenotypic characteristics: ANAE-, Mo 1+, Leu M3+ and HLA-DR+. The anti-FIIIa antibody did not stain lymphoid cells, granulocytes, epithelial cells, endothelial cells and mast cells. The immunohistochemical detection of F-XIIIa works on formaldehyde-fixed paraffin-embedded sections. The most promising application seems to be the identification of histiocytes in lymphoid and histiocytic proliferations.
