Sensitization of resting T cells to autologous natural-killer-cell-mediated lysis by phytohemagglutinin

Abstract

Natural killer (NK) cells are non-T, non-B cell lymphocytes that lyse a variety of tumor and virus-infected cells. In this study, we demonstrated that phytohemagglutinin (PHA) rendered resistant autologous T cells extremely sensitive to natural-killer(NK)-cell-mediated lysis. The sensitization was very rapid and concentration-dependent (0.01–1 μg/ml); 62… (More)
