  • Transferrin is required by many cells for growth. Mitogen-induced T lymphocyte proliferation is dependent on the presence of both interleukin 2 (IL-2; T-cell growth factor) and transferrin, even though resting lymphocytes do not have receptors for either. Exposure to mitogen (phytohemagglutinin) alone is sufficient to induce transient appearance of IL-2 receptors on lymphocytes. Using monoclonal antibodies to the IL-2 receptor and to the transferrin receptor, we examined those signals required… CONTINUE READING
