Rat T lymphocytes require dendritic cells as accessory cells in order to respond to the mitogen sodium periodate. Passage of a lymph node cell suspension through a column of Sephadex G-10 reduced the mitogenic response by greater than 90%, despite a cell recovery of 75%. An even greater reduction in the response occurred after a second passage over Sephadex G-10; addition of purified dendritic cells restored the response. Lymph node cell suspensions and preparations enriched in dendritic cells were nearly depleted of these cells by passage over Sephadex G-10. After passage of lymph node cells over Sephadex G-10, a limited number of retained cells could be recovered; these included both dendritic cells and macrophages. Enumeration of macrophages in the various passed and retained fractions by non-specific esterase staining of smears confirmed that macrophages were effectively removed from lymph node cell suspensions by repeated passage over Sephadex G-10. Cell preparations that pass through Sephadex G-10 are therefore depleted of both dendritic cells and macrophages.
