Lymphocyte activation gene-3 (CD223) regulates the size of the expanding T cell population following antigen activation in vivo.


Lymphocyte activation gene-3 (LAG-3) is a CD4-related, activation-induced cell surface molecule that binds to MHC class II with high affinity. In this study, we used four experimental systems to reevaluate previous suggestions that LAG-3(-/-) mice had no T cell defect. First, LAG-3(-/-) T cells exhibited a delay in cell cycle arrest following in vivo… (More)
