A population of CD8+ T cells from dinitrobenzene sulfonate-primed mice produce soluble effector molecules that down-regulate the magnitude of dinitrophenol-specific contact hypersensitivity reactions. These soluble molecules express the binding specificity and serologic determinants of alpha/beta TCR. To examine the requirement for the TCR-alpha chain in(More)
Active suppression of contact sensitivity to DNFB in mice is mediated by a soluble suppressor factor (SSF) which is released in vitro by cultures of LN cells that contain antigen-specific suppressor T cells. For SSF-mediated suppression to occur, identity is required among genes in the H-2 complex between the donor of SSF and the donar of DNFB-immune LN(More)
Microglia express cytokines, major histocompatibility (MHC) loci, and several other immunologically important constituents. The aim of this study was to detect immunological responses of microglial cells following allogeneic dopaminergic transplantation using active and adoptive immunizations. Adult inbred Fisher 344 (F344 RT1) rats were unilaterally(More)
The in vitro proliferative response of normal mouse spleen cells to anti-immunoglobulin (Anti-Ig) reagents was found to be an age-associated phenomenon. The response usually appears in mice when they reach 5 to 7 months of age and is rarely seen in younger animals. Anti-Ig induced proliferation was observed by using two different antisera--one polyvalent,(More)
