Recently the human T cell erythrocyte receptor CD2 has been shown to bind human erythrocytes through LFA-3, a heavily gly-cosylated surface protein of broad tissue distribution1,2. CD2–LFA-3 interactions are important for cytolytic conjugate formation3,4, for thymocyte adhesion5, and for T cell activation6. A complementary DNA clone encoding LFA-3 was… CONTINUE READING
