The expression of a human erythroid cell surface antigen recognized by monoclonal
antibody (mAB) HAES has been studied on peripheral blood reticulocytes by one- and
two-color flow cytometry. Total reticulocyte count was determined using Thiazole Orange
(TO) and flow cytometry. In normal individuals, 4.56% of reticulocytes were stained by
FITC-labeled mAB HAE9. The correlation between reticulocyte percentage by TO and
HAES staining was 0.828 (P < 0.0001) in patients with hematocrits less than 0.25. A
HAE9-positive reticulocyte percentage of 6 4 4 % was observed when analyzed by
two-color flow cytometry with TO and mAB HAE9. These findings, in conjunction with
previous studies, suggest that mAB HAES recognizes an early, less differentiated
population of peripheral blood reticulocytes. Enumerationof immature reticulocytes may
be of clinical utility.
