Colonies of granular natural-killer cells selectively develop in lymph-node cell cultures of nude mice after stimulation with rat T-cell growth factor. When these cells are grown on X-irradiated monolayers prepared from 16-18-day-old mouse embryos, they are triggered to synthesize and secrete a sulphated glycoprotein that can be identified as mucus. As a result of an erosive process of the granules, the mucoid material accumulates in pools in the cytoplasm matrix. The secretion is operated through a process of budding of double-membrane-bound vesicles. The successful triggering of mucous synthesis is interpreted by the successful growth of those mesenchymal cells in the embryonic monolayer that function in the induction of epithelial morphogenesis in the developing embryo.
