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… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Transferrin receptor induction is required for human B‐lymphocyte activation but not for immunoglobulin secretion
TLDR
It is determined that transferrin receptor expression on B cells is regulated by a factor contained in supernatants of mitogenstimulated T cells (probably B‐cell growth factor), and it is demonstrated that IgM messenger RNA induction following mitogen stimulation is unaffected by antitransferrin receptor antibody.
Regulation of proto-oncogene expression during T lymphocyte activation and proliferation.
TLDR
The proliferation of T lymphocytes is regulated in part through their membrane receptors for antigen and for T cell growth factor, and binding of serum transferrin to its receptor in late G1 phase of the cell cycle is required for T cells to undergo the G1 → S phase transition, thereby initiating DNA synthesis and resulting ultimately in cell division.
Transferrin synthesis by inducer T lymphocytes.
TLDR
The studies described here demonstrate that Tf is synthesized by a specific subset of T lymphocytes, the T4+ inducer subset, and appears to be involved in an autocrine pathway which is functionally linked to the IL-2/IL-2 receptor autocrine loop.
Abnormal expression pattern of Tac and T9 antigens onin vitro activation of leukemic T cells
TLDR
The sequential activation steps reported for normal T cells were not observed in the present study on leukemic T cells, which suggest that there are other pathways to DNA synthesis in leukeic T cells and even innormal T cells.
Cyclosporine inhibits the expression of receptors for interleukin 2 and transferrin on mitogen-activated human T lymphocytes.
TLDR
It is indicated that CsA inhibits mitogen-induced expression of IL2R and TR, and for some mitogen systems, this inhibition appears, at least in part, to be secondary to decreased IL2 production.
Interleukin-2 Receptors
TLDR
Patients with the Tac positive adult T-cell leukemia are being treated with the anti-Tac monoclonal antibody directed towards this growth factor receptor, providing an explanation for the constant association of HTLV-I infection of lymphoid cells and IL-2 receptor expression.

TLDR
Patients with the Tac-positive ATL are being treated with both unmodified and toxin-conjugated forms of anti-Tac monoclonal antibody directed toward this growth factor receptor, thus providing an explanation for the constant association of HTLV-I infection of lymphoid cells and IL-2 receptor expression.
Up-regulation of transferrin receptor gene expression by granulocyte colony-stimulating factor in human myeloid leukemia cells.
TLDR
Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor enhanced surface transferrin receptor (TfR) expression in two human myeloid leukemia cell lines, NKM-1 and NOMO-1, which possess G-CSF receptors and provides evidence that the regulation is mediated by controlling the steady-state level of the mRNA.
Post-transcriptional regulation of the transferrin receptor and 4F2 antigen heavy chain mRNA during growth activation of spleen cells.
TLDR
The expression of several cell surface proteins including the transferrin receptor and 4F2 antigen is induced when quiescent cells are activated and proliferate and suggests that post-transcriptional control mechanisms are mainly responsible for the accumulation of the respective mRNA at the onset of cell proliferation.

A monoclonal antibody that appears to recognize the receptor for human T-cell growth factor; partial characterization of the receptor
TLDR
It is demonstrated that anti-Tac suppresses TCGF induced proliferation of T cells and blocks binding of radiolabelled TCGF to cells from a cloned human continuous T-cell line.

TLDR
The inhibition of cell growth by 42/6 monoclonal antibody suggests that monoconal antibodies against proliferation-associated cell surface antigens, such as the transferrin receptor, may be useful pharmacological reagents to modify cell growth in vitro.
A phorbol ester (TPA) can replace macrophages in human lymphocyte cultures stimulated with a mitogen but not with an antigen.
TLDR
TPA appears to mimic the macrophage-replacing ability of soluble factors (IL 1, macrophages supernatants) in the triggering of human lymphocytes in cultures stimulated with tetanus.
Human T lymphocyte/monocyte interaction in response to lectin: kinetics of entry into the S-phase.
TLDR
PHA-mediated mitogenesis of human peripheral blood T lymphocytes was studied by using highly purified cell populations and it appears that IL-2 is the requisite signal necessary for the activated human lymphocyte to actually progress through the prereplicative phase of the cycle into the S-phase.
Ubiquitous cell-surface glycoprotein on tumor cells is proliferation-associated receptor for transferrin.
A murine monoclonal antibody (OKT9) raised against human leukemic cells binds to a wide variety of leukemia and tumor cell lines and to a minority of leukemia cells taken directly from patients.
T cell growth factor receptors. Quantitation, specificity, and biological relevance
TLDR
The results indicate that TCGF interacts with activated T cells via a receptor through which it initiates the T cell proliferative response, and the relative magnitude of T cell proliferation induced by a given concentration of TCGF closely paralleled the fraction of occupied receptor sites.
Transferrin can replace serum for in vitro growth of mitogen‐stimulated T lymphocytes
TLDR
A small contamination of transferrin in the human serum albumin preparations used was shown to be responsible for their growth‐supporting effect, while no need for the presence of albumin itself could be demonstrated.
Functional and morphologic characterization of human T cells continuously grown in vitro.
TLDR
The functional and morphologic characteristics of these cultured cells show that these cells are T cells that grow continuously in vitro, similar to those of fresh peripheral blood cells.
Modulation of cell surface iron transferrin receptors by cellular density and state of activation.
TLDR
Investigations of plasma membrane transferring receptors on a variety of lymphoid cell lines and normal peripheral blood lymphocytes during activation and cell growth cycles anticipate nuclear changes during cell activation and subsequent mitosis of normal cells.

TLDR
Human T-cell growth factor, a mitogenic protein that appears in the media of cultured lymphocytes after phytohemagglutinin-stimulation, has been purified more than 400-fold from serum-free conditioned media by using a sequence of ion exchange chromatography and gel filtration, indicating that the factor is a second signal in the T- cell immune response.
