Interleukin-2 Induced Changes in Mononuclear Cell Surface Charge
Interleukin-2 (IL-2) is not only the hormone responsible for progression of the T cell cycle, but it is also a potent activator of cytolytic (lymphokine-activated killer, LAK) activity against a wide variety of autologous and allogeneic tumours1. These effects are mediated through specific target cell membrane receptors.
