T-lymphocytes form rosettes with sheep red blood cells (SRBC) after incubation at 4°C (7). By increasing incubation temperature to 37°C, their ability to form this kind of rosettes (E-rosettes) is lost. On the other hand T-lymphoblasts with SRBC continue to form E-rosettes when the incubation temperature is increased to 37°C (2, 13). The cause for the different temperature dependency of E-rosettes on T-lymphocytes compared to T-lymphoblasts is unknown.
