The frequency of Fc-receptor positive B lymphocytes in human blood was investigated. Under the conditions used heat-aggregated gammaglobulin binding and EA(ox)-rosette formation labelled the same lymphocyte populations. Using various techniques, double marking and cell separations the proportion of Fc-receptor positive cells with the surface Ig carrying population was estimated to be between 11.8 and 36.2%. The proportion of SIg carrying cells within the population forming EA-rosette was between 11 and 26.4%. This represents extreme values due to known technical circumstances.
