Effects of combinations of cytokines on murine antigen-specific B lymphocytes.


Cytokines are among the most important mediators in the immune response. They act on B lymphocytes at various stages along the activation pathway. To study the effects of combinations of cytokines, we have used an antigen-specific single B cell-cloning system devised in this laboratory. We report here that IL-1 can enhance the proliferative response and IgM… (More)
