Dr. Watt: Yes, they were. Dr. Engel: What steps have you taken to purify either the single cell suspensions or the minced cell preparations before transplantation? A single cell preparation could contain fibroblasts, macrophages, and endothelial cells with different antigenic properties. Dr. Watt: We have looked at that. Jenny Morgan produced a much more pure myogenic population, and we find that these cells are productive. By using such a situation, we can purify the cells very well. The other thing to do is we can take the cells straight after disaggregating them, and just pop them into a tissue culture dish, and leave them for forty minutes, in which time the myogenic cells adhere, and then take them out.

1H11 in that antibody binding was lost when cells were treated with detergent. No posi ti ve results were obtained by immunoprecipi tation or Western blot analyses also. , 1989). 1H11 or other NCAM reacti ve McAbs. It should be possible to monitor the purification and differentiation of such populations of cells by biochemical means also since some of the McAbs work in Western blotting and immunoprecipitation systems. These studies clearly suggest that N-CAM is likely to be a useful target antigen for the purification and subsequent differentiation of human myoblasts in transfer therapy.

They have distinct binding sites. There is one epitope that seems very immunodominant on N-CAM and McAb UJ13A and a number of others can cross-compete for this site. lH1l reacts with one of these. One recently described McAb called ERIC-l may indeed react with the homophilic binding region. My colleagues George Dickson and Dave Peck have found that addition of Fab fragments of this antibody into a model assay system using C2 muscle cells transfected with human N-CAM will reverse the enhanced process of myoblast fusion that is induced following transfection.
