Phenotypic analysis of receptor-ligand pairs on B-cells in B-chronic lymphocytic leukemia



Phenotypic analysis of receptor-ligand pairs on B-cells in B-chronic lymphocytic leukemia



Leukemia and Lymphoma 25(3-4): 301-311



Whole-blood three-color immunofluorescence analysis was used to investigate the role of CD5/CD72 and CD21/CD23 receptor-ligand pair formation on B-chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) cells as well as sCD23 and bcl-2 oncoprotein expression in disease progression and activity and total tumor mass in B-cell chronic leukemia (B-CLL) patients. Thirty-four patients with B-CLL and 19 controls were included in the study. The majority of B-cells in B-CLL patients coexpressed CD5 and CD72 as well as the CD23 antigen. Unlike B-cells in B-CLL patients, B-cells in all healthy controls tested had high expression of CD21 antigen. We identified two groups of B-CLL patients according to high (n = 20) or low levels (n = 14) of CD21 expression on CD19+CD23+ B-cells. Only in the patients with high CD21 expression, were sCD23 levels positively correlated with factors known to have prognostic significance in B-CLL (Rai stage and TTM) and could, therefore, be used as a prognostic parameter for these B-CLL patients. Bcl-2 oncoprotein expression did not differ between these patient groups. We presumed that in patients with a lower expression of CD21 antigen, the contribution of the CD21 molecule to homotypic adhesion was lacking. Further studies are necessary to determine the possible association of higher expression of the CD21 antigen with disease progression and the aggressive character of the B-CLL.
