Murine monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) HISL-5, -9, and -14, generated after immunization of mice with human pancreatic islet cell preparations, recognize a differentiation antigen expressed by the pancreatic islet cells. These MAbs react strongly with all endocrine cell subtypes of human pancreatic islets, but minimally if at all with the exocrine acinar cells, vascular cells, and stromal connective tissue cells of the pancreas. The antigen is located on the cell surface (plasma membranes), as indicated by immunofluorescence staining of viable cell preparations. Besides the pancreatic islets, HISL-5, -9, and -14 antigenic determinants are also expressed by thyroid follicular cells, parathyroid chief cells, and anterior pituitary cells, other commonly involved targets in organ-specific autoimmune disorders. Preliminary biochemical findings indicated that the MAb-defined epitope(s) is trypsin sensitive and resistant to periodate oxidation and exposure to chloroform-methanol. Further biochemical studies, including single step MAb immunoaffinity chromatographic purification, indicate that the antigen recognized by the MAbs HISL-5, -9, and -14 is a 100 K glycoprotein.
