Mechanism of Specific Tumor-Cell Lysis by Alloimmune T Lymphocytes: Resolution and Characterization of Discrete Steps in the Cellular Interaction

  • Eric Martz
Part of the Contemporary Topics in Immunobiology book series (CTI, volume 7)


A cytolytic thymus-derived lymphocyte (CTL)* is a specialized cell the recognized function of which is immune killing. CTLs are generated by a process of antigen-induced clonal selection, proliferation, and differentiation. Each CTL apparently recognizes a single H-2 alloantigen. CTL targets are eukaryotic tissue cells bearing specific membrane-associated antigen, such as virus-infected autologous cells, grafted cells of genetically different origin, tumor cells, or autologous cells made more immunogenic by chemical modification. CTLs are believed to play a uniquely important role in physiological immune tissue destruction (for which serum immunoglobulins are usually insufficient), probably utilizing mononuclear phagocytes as an amplifying mechanism.
