To compare the helper function of murine T cell clones that secrete IL-2 and IFN-gamma (Th1 cells) or IL-4 and IL-5 (Th2), purified resting B cells were stimulated with F(ab')2 rabbit anti-mouse Ig (RAMG) and rabbit Ig-specific, class II MHC-restricted cloned T cells belonging to the two subsets. Both Th2 clones examined induced strong proliferative(More)
Mice rendered B cell deficient by treatment with rabbit anti-mouse IgM (anti-mu) antibodies from birth fail to respond when primed with soluble protein antigens in CFA, as measured by T cell proliferation when challenged with antigen in vitro. The role of B cells in T cell priming in vivo was examined by adoptively transferring hapten-specific B cells into(More)
Splenic B cells specific for the haptens, 2,4,6-trinitrophenyl (TNP) or fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) were cultured with a range of concentrations of unmodified or TNP- or FITC-conjugated conalbumin and the conalbumin + I-Ak-specific, interleukin (IL) 1-dependent helper T cell clone, D10 . G4, in the presence and absence of IL-1. Lymphokine secretion, T(More)
The ability of antigen-specific murine B lymphocytes to present antigen to a normal (nontransformed) antigen-specific, interleukin (IL)1-dependent T cell clone and to heterogeneous T lymphocytes was investigated. Hapten-specific lymphocytes present protein antigens to both the D10G.4.1 T cell clone and heterogeneous immune T cells. When the antigen bears an(More)
