Antigen-Independent Maturation of CD2, CD11a/CD18, CD44, and CD58 Expression on Thymic Emigrants in Fetal and Postnatal Sheep


We have compared the expression of CD2, CD11a/CD18, CD44, and CD58 and alpha beta and gamma delta T cells emigrating from the fetal and postnatal thymus. We report that both gamma delta and the CD4+CD8- and CD4-CD8+ subsets of alpha beta T cells express mature levels of the adhesion molecules CD11a/CD18, CD44, and CD58 upon emigration from the thymus… (More)
