Abstract The hope that hybridoma antibodies would reveal unique cell surface antigens during embryogenesis, differentiation and oncogenesis has been replaced by the realization that such antigens are mainly carbohydrate structures of glycoproteins and glycolipids occurring in many cell types. These findings either may reflect limitations in the methods of selection of hybridoma antibodies or may point to important roles for the diverse carbohydrate structures as receptors for regulators of cell growth and differentiation.
