Protein A (pA), was found to augment the natural killing (NK) activity of peripheral blood lymphocytes against Burkitt's lymphoma-derived Raji and Daudi cells. This pA-enhanced NK activity was determined using the 51Chromium release microcytotoxicity assay. It was found that the increased NK activity was dependent on the concentration of pA used. In addition, the pA-enhanced NK activity was dependent on the time of incubation of pA with the effector and target cell mixture. Pretreatment of… CONTINUE READING
