Stressor-induced changes in mitogenic activity are not associated with decreased interleukin 2 production or changes in lymphocyte subsets.

Abstract

Splenic lymphocytes from Lewis rats that received presentations of physically aversive electric shock demonstrated a marked reduction in responsiveness to T-cell mitogens such as concanavalin A. This study examined cellular mechanisms which may be responsible for this functional alteration. There was no difference in distribution of T-cell subsets from… (More)
