Using commercially available monoclonal antibodies that bind to human lymphocyte subsets, we examined lymph nodes from the rhesus monkey and the dog for their binding ability to these monoclonal antibodies. The avidin biotin-peroxidase immunostaining procedure was used, and the following antibodies were reactive in the rhesus monkey: Leu 4, Leu 3a, OKT4, Leu 2a, OKT8, T8, Leu 5b, T11, Leu 14, B1, and Leu 12. No immunoreactivity was observed in the dog lymph node except for moderate reactivity of OKT8. The following antibodies failed to react in both the rhesus monkey and the dog: OKT3, T1, T2, T1B, T4, T8A, Pan B, and T29/33. Kappa and lambda immunoglobulin light chains were positive in both the dog and monkey.
