Murine 6C3HED lymphoma cells were found to rosette with sheep red blood cells (SRBC). Normal C3H lymphocytes did not exhibit this property. This rosetting capacity of 6C3HED cells was found to be an accurate and reproducible means for discriminating between normal and tumor cells. The SRBC receptor on these lymphoma cells appeared to be serologically distinct from that expressed by normal human T lymphocytes since reciprocal blocking experiments demonstrated that inhibitory antisera were not cross-reactive. The expression of the SRBC receptor by the 6C3HED cells appeared to correlate with the expression of a tumor-associated antigen and was spatially related to an antigen expressed by 6C3HED and normal neonatal but not adult mouse cells.
