Ultrastructural localization of anionic sites and lectin-binding sites in sarcoid human alveolar macrophages during interaction with T-lymphocytes.


Sarcoidosis alveolitis is caused by an unknown stimulus activating alveolar macrophages (AM) and T-lymphocytes. During antigen presentation, the complex HLA class II molecule/processed peptide, on the surface of sarcoid AM, induces the T-lymphocyte to proliferate. Altered glycosylation patterns of cell surface glycoproteins such as class II molecules in… (More)
