It is well known that the generation of specific cytolytic activity during Mixed Lymphocyte Reaction (MLR) requires cooperation between cytotoxic T cell precursors (CTLp) and T helper cells (1-2). In humans these two cells can be distinguished and separated using the monoclonal antibody 5 • 9, which reacts with an antigenic determinant present on the… (More)
