To search for a potential role of T cell antigen receptor (TcR) γ/β-bearing cells in host-defense against Listeria monocytogenes, we analyzed the sequential appearance of γ/δ and α/β T cell in the peritoneal exudate cells (PEC) during an i.p. infection with sublethal dose (2 × 103) of viable Listeria organisms in mice. The PEC on day 1 after the infection consisted of 48% macrophages and 50% lymphocytes, most of which were surface IgM+ (B) cells. The number of PEC increased to the maximal level… CONTINUE READING
