IL-2 has been examined for its ability to regulate lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) activity. IL-2 is a potent activator of cytolytic activity against a wide array of tumor cells, including those from fresh autologous and allogeneic tumors. Using subpopulations of lymphoid cells that were separated on Percoll density gradients, and subsequently purified by(More)
A number of the well-known visual after-effects of adaptation exhibit interocular transfer, so that presentation of an adaptation figure to one eye produces a temporary change in the performance of the nonadapted eye. This outcome is usually attributed to the involvement of binocular visual neurons that respond to stimulation of either eye. The fact that(More)
Treatment of the BL6 melanoma cells in vitro with N-methyl-N'-nitronitrosoguanidine dramatically increased their expression of H-2Kb and H-2Db antigens as well as beta 2-microglobulin but not Class 2 major histocompatibility complex antigens. The treated tumor cells also became immunogenic and were rejected in 70% of syngeneic C57BL/6 recipients, whereas(More)
Two experiments were performed to localize the site of binocular rivalry suppression in relation to the locus of grating adaptation. In one experiment it was found that phenomenal suppression of a high-contrast adaptation grating presented to one eye had no influence on the strength of the threshold-elevation aftereffect measured interocularly. Evidently(More)
Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is associated with a viral (HTLV-III/LAV)-mediated progressive depletion of a helper/inducer T4+ T cell subset, whereas acute T cell leukemia is associated with a viral (HTLV-I)-mediated growth of the same T cell subset. Because large granular lymphocytes (LGL) with natural killer (NK) activity have been shown to(More)
Fixation of APC with 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylamino-propyl)carbodiimide (ECDI) eliminates their ability to stimulate proliferation of alloreactive T cells or the D10 T cell clone, although a partial response, IL-4 production, was measured. However, if APC were activated before fixation, they could be ECDI-fixed and retain the ability to induce T cell(More)
