Specific enhancement of immune responses by BCG: isolation of extracellular DNA from supernatants of specifically stimulated BCG-primed lymphoid cells.

Abstract

When lymphocytes obtained from W/Fu rats primed with BCG are cultured in the presence of PPD, they elaborate a factor that is capable of potentiating the specific in vitro generation of cytotoxic lymphocytes to syngeneic (C58NT)D lymphoma cells and to BN alloantigen. Purification of the factor, achieved by gel filtration on Sephadex G-100, was facilitated… (More)
