Murine lymphocytes have been shown previously to possess high-affinity specific receptors for the neuropeptide vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP). This study examines the cellular basis for modulation of concanavalin A (Con A)-induced T-cell responses by this neuropeptide. VIP was most effective as an inhibitor when added at the initiation of the mitogen… CONTINUE READING
