The mechanisms responsible for the induction of I-J restrictions on third-order suppressor T cells (TS3) were analyzed. The I-J phenotype of the antigen-coupled cells used for priming restricted the specificity of the TS3 population. Thus, TS3 cells were only generated after priming with antigen-coupled I-J homologous cells. Identity at the I-JM (and I-E)(More)
In the 4-hydroxy-3-nitrophenyl acetyl (NP) contact sensitivity system, the activity of third-order suppressor cells and their factors is restricted by H-2(I-J) and Igh linked genes. The present report analyzes the specificity of NP-specific Ts3 cells and factors derived from H-2 and Igh heterozygous (B6 X C3H)F1 mice. Two approaches were used. First,(More)
The epitope region on the TNF-alpha molecule recognized by monoclonal antibody (mAb) 3-D-6, which neutralizes the cytotoxic activity on murine LM cells, has been determined as Gly24-Gln-Leu-Gln-Trp-Leu-Asn-Arg31. To examine whether this region participates in TNF receptor binding in human cell lines, four kinds of TNF-alpha mutants (Gln25 --> Glu, Gln27 -->(More)
Over the past decade there have been numerous descriptions of suppressor T cells (Ts) and of factors derived from such cells. Several apparently related, but nonidentical, suppressor regulatory pathways consisting of a variety of T-T interactions have been described (1-4). Our laboratory has concentrated on one of these models of antigen-specific(More)
