  • DIVERSITY OF T-CELL ANTIGEN RECEPTOR VARIABLE GENES USED BY MYCOSIS-FUNGOIDES CELLS AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PATHOLOGY Bahler, D. W., Berry, G., Oksenberg, J., Warnke, R. A., Levy, R. 1992; 140 (1): 1-8

    Abstract:

    The expression of T-cell antigen receptor beta-chain variable genes (V beta) was evaluated in 28 cases of mycosis fungoides. A novel polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique was used to associate expression of particular V beta genes with monoclonal T-cell populations. In addition, the same biopsies used for PCR analysis were also examined for reactivity with a panel of seven monoclonal antibodies that specifically recognized V beta proteins from four different families. Only three cases clearly stained with the antibodies, a result consistent with a diverse set of V beta genes being used. This was confirmed by PCR analysis, which indicated that V beta genes from many different families were expressed by these tumors. Preferential use of the V beta 8 family, which had been previously use of the V beta 8 family, which had been previously reported for this disease, was not evident among the cases analyzed.
