The morphology of nonspecific cytotoxic cells (NCC) was identified. NCC were purified by target cell conjugate formation and density gradient separation. NCC are monocyte-like. They have reniform nuclei and a low nucleus/cytoplasm ratio. Cytoplasmic granules were not seen after giemsa staining. Scanning electron microscopy demonstrated moderate surface villi and target cell attachment occurred via long membraneous filament-like surface projections extending to the target cell membranes… CONTINUE READING
