Membrane marker techniques, endocytosis, and cytochemical methods were used to characterize L5178Y cells. L5178Y cells were found to have surface membrane immunoglobulin that typifies B-cells, and membrane receptors that are common to both B-cells and monocytes. L5178Y cells also have endocytic and enzymatic activities that are characteristic of monocytes. Thus L5178Y cells have the dual characteristics of B-cells and monocytes.
