The study of signals involved in the generation and maintenance of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) has been facilitated by the availability of various techniques based on the mixed leukocyte culture (MLC) test (Bain et al. 1964; Bach and Hirschhorn 1964). In addition to the proliferative response in an MLC, CTLs are generated (Hayry and Defendi 1970; Hodes and Svedmyr 1970; Solliday and Bach 1970).
