The activation of CD8(+) T cells by normal intestinal epithelial cells in antigen-specific or allogeneic mixed cell culture systems has significant implications for the modulation of mucosal immune responses due to the fact that these T cells appear to have regulatory rather than cytolytic activity. A 180-kDa glycoprotein (gp180) has been identified and… CONTINUE READING
