T-lymphocyte markers of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMCs) of C. aethiops monkeys were studied by using anti-human monoclonal antibodies. The results show that C. aethiops T lymphocytes express surface markers which react specifically with anti-human MoAbs including CD3, CD4, CD8, CD2. However, very few CD3-positive cells were found, in contrast to the abundance in CD8+ cells. There is a high conservation of receptors forming E rosettes with AET-treated SRBCs, and antigens reacting with the anti-human T and B cell monoclonal antibody (Campath-1). The present findings indicate that C. aethiops can be used as a new experimental model for studies on T-cell depletion from bone marrow with Campath-1 MoAb + rabbit C.
