Abstract

Monoclonal antibodies have been generated against cell surface components of the unicellular phytoflagellate Apedinella radians (Pedinellophyceae). One monoclonal antibody, designated Arg 1E5/1B1, labels a scale associated protein (SAP) of 145 kDa. Immunofluorescence microscopy of whole cells as well as immunoelectron microscopy of whole cell mounts and thin sections using Arg 1E5/1B1 have shown that the SAP is located on the proximal surface of body scales and spine-scales. Its specific location suggests that the SAP may play a role in the adhesion of these surface components to the cell membrane and/or to one another. The potential of monoclonal antibody Arg 1E5/1B1 as a tool to study cell surface morphogenesis and the role of the endomembrane system in A. radians is discussed.
