Abstract

Recent studies involving the mixed lymphocyte reaction (MLR) have suggested that genes which map in the I region, and are expressed predominately on B-lymphocytes, are responsible for stimulation of allogeneic responding cells (1). It has been shown, however, that both T- and B-lymphocytes stimulate in the MLR, albeit T-lymphocytes are less stimulatory than B-lymphocytes (2).
