Cytotoxic effects of leukocyres triggered by complement bound to target cells.

Chromium-51-labeled chicken erythrocytes (E), treated with rabbit anti-Forssman antibody (A) and the first four (C1-4) or the first seven (C1-7) components of human complement (C), released isotope upon exposure to human leukocytes. Isotope release from EACJ-7 cells proceeded more rapidly and was more extensive than that from EACI-3 cells. Lysis of these… CONTINUE READING
