Role of TNF-alpha in CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocyte-mediated lysis.


The possibility that lymphokines such as TNF-alpha produced by CD8+ CTL are responsible for acute (short term) target cell damage induced by CTL has been debated for many years. However, the slow kinetics of TNF-induced target cell death stands in sharp contrast to the rapid target cell lysis mediated by CTL. We find that cloned CD8+ CTL activated through… (More)
