Representative results of immunostaining with novel anti-CD26 mAbs. A. The tissue specimens of liver, kidney, prostate or two cases of malignant mesothelioma were stained with 100 μl of commercial mouse anti-human CD26 mAb supernatant (MBL, clone 44–4) (i), or 10 μg/ml of purified goat anti-human CD26 pAb (R&D Systems) (ii), or newly developed hybridoma supernatant (clone 18 (iii), clone 19 (iv) or clone 3 (v)). B. Malignant mesothelioma tissue specimens were stained with commercial goat anti-human CD26 pAb (R&D Systems) (i), or purified novel mouse anti-human CD26 mAbs (clone 18 (ii) or clone 19 (iii)) at the indicated concentrations of Abs in the presence or absence of sCD26. C. The tissue specimens of hepatocellular carcinoma, renal cell carcinoma, prostate adenocarcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma or lung adenocarcinoma were stained with 100 μg/ml of commercial goat anti-human CD26 pAb (R&D Systems) (i), or purified mouse anti-human CD26 mAbs (clone 18 (ii) or clone 19 (iii)). All specimens were counterstained with hematoxylin (original magnification, 200X).
