Human B-lymphoblastoid cells established in long-term culture from healthy adults carry surface components that are normally found in human fetal tissues at about 10 wk of age. These antigens are strongly expressed on neoplastic B lymphocytes but not on thymocytes or a cultured T-cell line. They are carried by a small subpopulation of normal adult peripheral blood lymphocytes as well.
