Previously, we prepared an IgM monoclonal antibody (PFG-1) which specifically recognized a cell-membrane glycoprotein (PFG-1 antigen; 55 kD, pI 5.9), immunohistochemically reacted with granulosa cells of healthy follicles but not of atretic follicles, and induced granulosa cell apoptosis. In the present study, an IgM monoclonal antibody (PFG-3) capable of inducing granulosa cell apoptosis and an IgG monoclonal antibody (PFG-4) not capable of inducing apoptosis were produced against granulosa cells prepared from healthy antral follicles of porcine ovaries. Two-dimensional Western blotting analysis revealed that PFG-3 specifically recognized two cell-membrane proteins (named PFG-3-1 and PFG-3-2/PFG-1 antigens; 42 kD, pI 5.2 and 55 kD, pI 5.9, respectively) of healthy granulosa cells, and that PFG-4 recognized the same two cell-membrane proteins. In atretic granulosa cells, PFG-3-2/PFG-1 antigen disappeared. Immunochemical reactions of these antibodies were only detected in follicular granulosa cells but not any other ovarian tissues or organs. PFG-3 and PFG-4 immunohistochemically reacted with granulosa cells of healthy and atretic follicles. When the isolated granulosa cells prepared from healthy follicles were cultured in medium containing PFG-3, the cells underwent apoptosis, and co-incubation with PFG-4 inhibited PFG-3-inducible apoptosis. These observations suggested that PFG-3-2/PFG-1 antigen is a novel cell death receptor which is different from the apoptosis-mediating receptors (Fas/Apo-1/CD95 or TNF receptor), and that PFG-3-1 antigen may act as a decoy receptor and inhibit apoptotic signal transmission.
