The expression and up-regulation of cell adhesion molecules on a human colonic epithelial cell line HT-29, and the peripheral blood T lymphocyte proliferation responses to bacterial superantigens presented by this cell line were investigated, compared with peripheral blood monocytes. In HT-29 cells, there was constitutive expression of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and lymphocyte function-associated antigen-3 (LFA-3) at a low level, but no constitutive expression of HLA-DR, LFA-1… CONTINUE READING
