Lymphocytes with T-cell-like properties express the Fas ligand in the Japanese flounder Paralichthys olivaceus.

Abstract

In this study, we aimed to identify the leukocyte population that expresses Fas ligand (FasL) in the Japanese flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus). The transcriptional activity of FasL was examined for the first time in the fish leukocytes. Transcription of the FasL gene in flounder leukocytes was significantly increased by phytohemagglutinin (PHA) treatment… (More)
