THP1; THP 1; THPI
THP-1 is a monocyte cell line derived from the peripheral blood of an acute monocytic leukemia patient. These cells possess Fc and C3b receptors but lack surface or cytoplasmic immunoglobulins. Notably, the HLA haplotypes of THP-1 are HLA-A2, -A9, -B5, -DRW1, and -DRW2. The monocytic nature of THP-1 cells is evident through various characteristics, including the presence of α-naphthyl butyrate esterase activities that are susceptible to NaF inhibition, lysozyme production, phagocytosis capability for latex particles and sensitized sheep erythrocytes, and the ability to restore T-lymphocyte response to Con A.
