Characterization of the murine interleukin 5 receptor by using a monoclonal antibody.

Murine interleukin 5 (IL-5), a lymphokine produced by helper T cells, is involved in the regulation of growth and differentiation of B cells and other hematopoietic cells. The receptor for IL-5 has been identified as two cross-linked complexes on T88-M cells (a murine IL-5-dependent early B cell line). In this study the IL-5 receptor was directly… CONTINUE READING
