T suppressor efferent circuit which affects contact sensitivity to picryl chloride: the late-acting, second nonspecific T suppressor factor bears I-A determinants which are responsible for the I-A genetic restriction in its interaction with its target cell.

The T suppressor efferent circuit in the picryl (TNP) system, which inhibits the passive transfer of contact sensitivity, involves at least two antigen-nonspecific factors. The second nonspecific T suppressor factor (ns-2) bears I-A determinants of both the alpha and the beta chain as shown by affinity chromatography on immobilized anti-I-A monoclonal… CONTINUE READING
