Developmentally ordered appearance of a functional Fc gamma receptor on TCR V gamma 3 thymocytes. Evidence for stimulation-induced expression.

In the present report, we show that the Fc gamma receptor (Fc gamma R) becomes expressed on mature TCR V gamma 3 thymocytes, but it is absent on immature TCR V gamma 3 cells. Both Fc gamma RIII are Fc gamma RIII are expressed. The in vivo expression of the Fc gamma R on mature TCR V gamma 3 thymocytes coincides with an activated phenotype of the cells. In… CONTINUE READING
