    • Abstract


      The epsilon amino groups of lysine and to a lesser extent amino groups on phosphotidyl ethanolamine and phosphotidyl serine situated on cell membranes of normal human leucocytes have been identified as the sites of dinitrophenylation.In situ conversion of 10,000 hydrophylic amino sites into hydrophobic sites on cell surfaces causes conformational changes in cell membranes with exposures of leukaemic cell-specific neo-antigens on tagged cell surfaces.
