The decidua of allopregnant mice contains a novel population of Thy1 Lyt1 CD4 CD8 asialoGM1- non-B small lymphocytic suppressor cells that release transforming growth factor (TGF) SS2-related suppressor molecules. The "null" phenotype of this cell population is similar to some bone marrow-derived natural suppressor cell (NSC) populations, and the latter may release TGF(beta)s. We now report that the TGF beta2-producing suppressor cells in the uterine decidua of DBA/2-mated CBA/J female mice… CONTINUE READING
