Cross-talk between V beta 8+ and gamma delta+ T lymphocytes in contact sensitivity.

We have previously reported that T lymphocytes proliferating in vitro to the hapten trinitrochlorobenzene (TNCB) exhibit a very restricted V beta gene usage and response to TNCB is limited to T-cell receptors (TCR) composed of V beta 8.2 in combination with V alpha 3.2, V alpha 8 and V alpha 10. This paper investigates the role played by T lymphocytes… (More)
