Recognition of autologous lymphoblastoid cells by cloned human T cells: inhibition of cytotoxicity by anti-HLA antibody but not by antibody to Epstein-Barr virus induced cell surface antigen.


Cytotoxic T cells (Tc) can be primed in vitro to specifically kill autologous Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) transformed lymphoblastoid cell line cells (LCL). The antigen recognized by Tc on the LCL cells is designated LYDMA (lymphocyte determined membrane antigen). Recognition of LYDMA may also require simultaneous recognition of HLA determinants. Despite its… (More)
