A role for macrophages in suppressor cell induction.


A mechanism responsible for the induction of NP-specific first order (inducer) suppressor cells (TS1) is described. TS1 cells are induced by i.v. administration of hapten-coupled splenic cells. Their activity is assessed by the adoptive transfer of NP-specific suppression during the afferent phase of the contact sensitivity response. NP-coupled firmly… (More)
