T cell lines generated with type II collagen proliferate in an autologous mixed lymphocyte response.


Collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) is a T cell-dependent disease induced in susceptible rodents by immunizing with bovine type II collagen (bCII). In order to study T cell responses, a programme to generate bCII-specific T cell lines from arthritic rats was initiated. Lymph node cells from bCII-immune WA/KIR/kcl rats were cultured with bCII in vitro, and the… (More)
