Abstract/OtherAbstract:
H-2 alloantigen-activated T cells release Interleukin 2 in response to a secondary stimulus by either Concanavalin A or alloantigen. No detectable lymphokine is released in the absence of secondary stimulation and, in the case of alloantigen restimulation, lymphokine release is antigen-specific. Once formed, however, the lymphokine shows no antigen specificity in its action. Like the precursor of the cytotoxic T cell, the precursor of the Interleukin 2-producing T cell requires two signals for its activation; alloantigen and a source of costimulator activity. Once activated, T cells will release lymphokine in response to alloantigen alone.
