The CAMPATH-1 (CDw52) antigen has been purified from human spleen. The antigenic epitope is heat stable but sensitive to mild alkali treatment. Experiments with phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C indicate that it is anchored by a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor. An N-terminal sequence of 11 amino acids was determined, followed by an abrupt stop. Using short overlapping mixed oligonucleotide primers, cDNA synthesized from the mRNA of a human B cell line was amplified by th...Expand abstract
