T cell receptor gene rearrangement analysis in mycosis fungoides and disseminated lymphocytoma cutis.


A cDNA from the CT beta 2 region of the T cell receptor gene was used as a probe to investigate the clonal composition of T cells in the skin lesions of 3 patients with mycosis fungoides (MF) and 1 patient with disseminated lymphocytoma cutis (DLC). All of these skin lesions showed helper/inducer T cell dominant infiltration. Clonal T cell populations, as… (More)
