Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (H-PBMC) from 10 healthy donors were stimulated to proliferate with phytohemagglutinin lectin (PHA), anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody (mAb), and anti-CD3 mAb plus phorbol 12, myristate 13 acetate (TPA), a protein kinase C (PKC) agonist. Anti-CD3 mAb-mediated mitogenesis was 35-75% of that observed with PHA. When TPA was(More)
