Abstract

Functionally defined cloned T lymphocytes represent a homogeneous population of cells uniquely suited for the analysis of cell surface molecules involved in specific allorecognition, T cell clones expressing either cytolytic or amplifier functions have been derived in this laboratory from unidirectional secondary C57BL/6 anti-DBA/2 mixed lymphocyte culture (MLC) and have been maintained in long term culture (1). One cytolytic clone, designated L3, has been found to express cytolytic activity for the H-2d gene product (2). The L3 cell line has been used in the present study to derive and characterize a monoclonal antibody which reacts specifically with that cell line, and which is capable of inhibiting antigen specific cytolysis in the absence of complement.
