Concanavalin A responsiveness and interleukin 2 production in the snake Spalerosophis diadema.

Abstract

Thymocytes and splenocytes (SC) of adult snakes, Spalerosophis diadema, responded to concanavalin A (Con A) in vitro by strong proliferation during the spring and autumn seasons. Con A-mediated mitogenesis was, however, abrogated in summer and winter. Conditioned medium (CM) collected from snake SC cultures stimulated with Con A in spring or autumn could… (More)
