Hyperproliferative response of a monoclonal memory CD8 T cell population is characterized by an increased frequency of clonogenic precursors.


Strong memory T cell responses result partly from the selection of Ag-specific clones during immunization. In this study, we show that a monoclonal CD8 T cell population expressing a unique TCR is heterogeneous in terms of clonogenic potential following activation under optimal conditions. More importantly, the frequency of clonogenic cells is strongly… (More)
