This sequence, proven in 1965, addresses fresh advancements within the normal sector of atomic, molecular, and optical physics. the sphere is in a country of quick development, as new experimental and theoretical thoughts are dropped at endure on many elderly and new difficulties. Such difficulties variety from stories of the elemental houses of radiation and subject, via stories of hitherto inaccesible states of "ordinary" and unique atoms and molecules, the keep watch over of atoms and molecules by way of mild, the behaviour of atoms and molecules in excessive radiation fields, the certain constitution of such platforms, together with complicated molecules and molecular clusters, and quite a lot of interplay phenomena between atoms, molecules, and their constituent components and fields.

Sample text

First, T cells were cultured for 4 days with a protein antigen, resulting in the production of helper cells; the function of the helper T cell was assayed in a second culture by mixing the T cells with unprimed B cells 30 EXIIL R . UNANUE and the appropriate hapten-protein conjugate, later measuring the anti-hapten response. The anti-hapten response-usually to DNPwas measured by a plaque-forming assay. Carrier-specific helper T cells were generated, inducing a small to modest number of plaque-forming cells with rather large experimental variations.

Our studies indicated that serum treated with 2-ME and then alkylated with iodoacetamide generated a 65,000-MW molecule that migrated electrophoretically like albumin and promoted growth of B cells and T cells (Sidman and Unanue, 1978; also in Braun and Unanue, 1980). The active moiety appeared, therefore, to be closely related to albumin. The later studies of Opitz et al. , 1978, 1980): Using affinity chromatography with Affi-Gel Blue columns, the 2-MEgenerated moiety behaved exactly like albumin; furthermore, purified bovine albumin treated with 2-ME also generated a growth-promoting activity.

Nevertheless, the results in the various publications appeared to be highly consistent. The generation of helper T cells to hemocyanin or to (TG)-AL required the presence of accessory phagocytic cells in the culture. The 2-ME did not replace the need for macrophages. Macrophages pulsed with the antigen were also highly efficient in generating helper T cells. McDougal and Gordon (1977) developed a similar system. In their experiments, cortisone-resistant thymocytes developed into helper T cells upon culture with hemocyanin or fowl y-globulin.
