Absorption experiments on C3Hf normal mouse sera followed by cytotoxic tests on EL4 lymphoma cells were done to investigate a possible identity between natural antilymphoma antibodies (NAA) and various types of autoantibodies known to be present in normal mouse sera. Single C3Hf normal sera were also tested both by cytotoxicity on EL4 cells and by radioimmune precipitation assay (RIP) on 125I-labelled AKR ecotropic virus to ascertain whether or not viral antigens are the target structures of the NAA activity. The study provides evidence that NAA coexist with autoanticorpal and antiviral activities although they are distinct entities.
