Many different anti-human granulocyte monoclonal antibodies recognize the same carbohydrate antigen which contains the trisaccharide 3-fucosyl-N-acetyllactosamine. The antigen is expressed mainly on two cell surface glycoproteins of molecular weights around 105 K and 160K which are apparently not members of the LFA-1 family of proteins. Although specific for granulocytes in blood, the antigen is expressed on a wide range of non-haemopoietic cell types.
