The establishment of antigen specific T-cell clones of murine and human origins and the means for propagating them for prolonged periods in vitro facilitated several kinds of investigations such as T-cell heterogeneity and functional repertoires with regard to immunoregulatory and effector activities, the characterization of the molecular nature of the T cell receptor and the nature of T-cell collaborations with other cell types for the generation of immune reactions (Mozes and Apte, 1986).
