Male and female spleen cells were compared before and after culture for their cytotoxicity to autologous-embryo fibroblasts. Cultures of male cells developed significantly greater reactivity than cultures of female cells. Moreover, while the cytotoxicity derived from cultures of male cells was totally abolished by treatment of effector cells with a mouse anti-T cell antiserum, such an antiserum had less affect on the effector cells of female mouse cultures.
