A previously established human leukemia cell line, designated THP-6, was further characterized with respect to cell surface antigen expression and immunoglobulin(Ig) and T-cell receptor(TCR) gene status. THP-6 cells were positive for CD7 and CD5 antigens and terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase, but negative for CD2, CD1, CD4, CD8, CD10, cytoplasmic and surface CD3 and HLA-DR antigens, suggesting a precursor T-cell line. Analysis of Ig and TCR β chain genes revealed that THP-6 had a rearranged TCR β chain gene and a germline Ig gene. These results, in agreement with its phenotype, confirmed that THP-6 was of the T-cell lineage.
