We have shown previously that binding of a monoclonal antibody (MAb) to Tp44 molecules increased the proliferation of anti-CD3-activated T cells by causing enhanced IL 2 receptor expression and IL 2 release. We now show that anti-CD5 (Tp67) antibodies have a similar effect under conditions in which monocytes are suboptimally activated or where monocytes are(More)
We have studied the relationship of valency of CD3 stimulation and modulation of the CD3 receptor complex with biochemical and proliferative responses of T cells. Anti-CD3 Fab, as well as F(ab')2 and whole antibody caused rapid modulation of the CD3 antigen, whereas anti-CD3 conjugated to Sepharose did not. In the absence of monocytes, T cells stimulated(More)
The p220 antigen is found on the high m.w. form of the T200 common leukocyte antigen family. Although T200 monoclonal antibodies (MAb) react with all hematopoietic cells, p220 MAb react only with B cells, NK cells, about 50% of CD4+ T helper cells, and about 90% of CD8+ T suppressor cells. The p220 antigen appears to play an important role in T cell(More)
The growth regulatory functions of a family of structurally related polypeptides are mediated through the membrane-bound epidermal growth factor receptor molecule. This ligand family includes epidermal growth factor, transforming growth factor-alpha, amphiregulin, and polypeptides encoded by several poxviruses. The structural and functional properties that(More)
