CTLA4-CD80/CD86 interactions on primary mouse CD4+ T cells integrate signal-strength information to modulate activation with Concanavalin A.


The mechanisms by which concanavalin A (Con A), a lectin, activates T cells are poorly studied. A low dose of Con A is stimulatory for T cells, whereas a high dose of Con A results in suppression of proliferation and enhanced T cell death. The expression and functional roles of costimulatory receptors, CD28 and cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen 4 (CTLA4), and… (More)
