Identification of macrophages and smooth muscle cells in human atherosclerosis using monoclonal antibodies.
Sections of human atherosclerotic plaques were stained by the indirect immunoperoxidase technique using three rat anti-human monoclonal antibodies: YAML 501.4 (anti-'leukocyte-common' (T200) antigen; YTH 8.18 (antimacrophage cytoplasm); and YPC 1/3 . 12 (anti-smooth muscle cell). The cells of diffuse intimal thickening were almost all smooth muscle cells but there were rare subendothelial macrophages. Focal lesions, in contrast, contained numerous macrophages as well as smooth muscle cells. M...Expand abstract
