A new immunomodulator, LF 1695, was analyzed in vitro for its capacity to induce T cell markers (HTLA and OKT3, 4 and 8 antigens), to enhance the mitogen-induced lymphocyte proliferation, and to increase the Con A-induced suppressor activity. The inductive activity was compared with that of thymic hormone (thymosin fraction V). LF 1695 was capable of(More)
Lymphocytes from the pronephros of carp (Cyprinus carpio L) have been subjected to transformation by mitogens, concanavalin A (Con A), phytohemagglutinin (PHA), and lipopolysaccharides (LPS), with Zn or Mn at varying concentrations. Addition of Zn2+ (10(-7) to 10(-3) M) to mitogen-stimulated T and B cells enhanced [3H]thymidine incorporation. Addition of(More)
Proliferative response of splenic lymphocytes from adult (2 months old) male mice to human luteotrophic hormone (hLH) was studied in vitro. hLH induced lymphoblastic transformation at a concentration of 0.1 micrograms/ml or higher. This hormone potentiated the mitogen activities of concanavalin A (ConA) and phytohemagglutinin (PHA) for T cells and of(More)
The present study investigates the effect of a pituitary hormone (LH) and a thymic factor (Thymosin Fraction 5 = TF5) on in vitro and in vivo spleen cell proliferative response of 2, 6 and 8-month-old Balb/c mice. In vitro experiments showed that the addition of LH at various concentrations (0.5, 5, 50 or 500 ng/ml) to cultures increased significantly the(More)
