    Notes: The mixed lymphocyte culture (MLC) response of lymphocytes from CBA mice against C3H cells was studied after injection of spleen cells from C3H mice or C3H hybrids. Intravenous infusion of C3H cells resulted in a strongly suppressed specific MLC response, but this was not the case when cells from H-2-incompatible hybrids of C3H mice were injected. However, when mixtures of cells from the two parental strains-C3H cells and H-2-incompatible cells-were injected into CBA mice, there was a strongly suppressed MLC response to C3H cells. Mice that were hybrids between CBA and an H-2-disparate strain showed a depressed MLC response against C3H after injection of cells from hybrids between C3H and the same H-2-disparate strain. The results may indicate that a suppression of the MLC response to the strongly stimulatory non-H-2 antigen on C3H lymphocytes develops only when the immunizing cells can survive in the host for long periods, thus exhausting the pool of specifically responsive cells. The presence of another foreign transplantation antigen, such as H-2, on the same cells shortens the survival of the cells in the recipient.

    Notes: Injection of CBA mice with H-2-compatible lymphoid cells from C3H hybrids induces a specific reduction of the mixed lymphocyte culture (MLC) response of their lymphoytes. This is not the case after injection of H-2-disparate C3H-hybrid cells, presumably because they are rapidly eliminated due to the immune response of the host. This investigation shows that CBA mice injected with CBA × C57B1 cells (H-2-disparate) at an age of 0–3 days, but not older, develop a specifically reduced MLC response after infusion of C3H × C57B1 cells as adults, indicating that they were tolerant to the C57B1-determined antigens. However, lymphocytes from such mice showed a normal reactivity against C57B1 as assessed by MLC, graft-versus-host tests, and capacity to produce specific antibodies.

    Notes: The capacity of lymphocytes from mouse strain CBA to generate ‘effector’ cells against the H-2-compatible, M-antigen-incompatible strain C3H and their interaction with such target cells were investigated. It was observed that CBA lymphocytes injected in, and 5 days later obtained from, the spleens of irradiated C3H × CBA hybrids (‘educated cells’) could strongly inhibit the growth of C3H × CBA bone marrow cells but were almost nonresponsive to C3H × C57BI bone marrow targets (H-2-incompatible). CBA lymphocytes educated in irradiated C3H × C57B1 hosts displayed reactivity against C3H × C57B1 and CBA × C57B1 but not against C3H × CBA bone marrow target cells. Additional tests indicated that the M antigen determined by C3H is expressed td approximately the same extent on C3H × CBA and C3H × C57B1 cells and that the M antigen on C3H does not cross-react immunologically with antigens on C57B1 cells. Moreover, it was observed that CBA × C57B1 lymphocytes were triggered to cell proliferation by C3H antigens but were unable or had a highly reduced capacity to develop ‘effector’ cells in response to this antigenic stimulus. These results indicate that generation of ‘effector’ cells and their interaction with target cells are very complex processes.

    Notes: Lymphocytes from mice of strain CBA are strongly MLC-responsive to lymphocytes from the H-2 compatible- but M-antigen-incompatible strain C3H. This strong reactivity disappears after infusion of CBA mice with C3H lymphocytes. This study shows that the host-versus-graft reactivity (swelling of local lymph node after antigen injection) is specifically reduced after injection of CBA mice with C3H × CBA spleen cells However, lymphocytes from such mice showed a specifically increased GVH reactivity (inhibition of erythroid cell growth) compared with lymphocytes from unimmunized mice. Lymphocytes from normal CBA mice showed a high proliferative rate in the spleens of irradiated C3H × CBA mice. Such ‘educated’ cells showed strongly increased specific GVH reactivity. Lymphocytes from CBA mice previously injected with C3H×CBA cells showed reduced capacity to proliferate when injected into irradiated C3H × CBA hybrids and a poor capacity to develop new ‘effector’ cells reactive against C3H × CBA bone marrow target cells. The results indicate that the presence of specifically ‘MLC responsive’ lymphocytes in a lymphoid cell population is a prerequisite of its production of ‘effector’ cells able to respond in this GVH assay

    Notes: The thymocyte population of mice treated with cortisone was examined at various times with respect to its relative capacity to be triggered to DNA synthesis by soluble phytomitogens or mitogenic factors (MF) released by lymph node cells exposed to phytomitogens. The capacity of the thymocyte population to produce MF in response to phytomitogen exposure was also examined. We found that the relative blastogenic activity of both phytomitogens and MF on thymocytes increased as the cell number of the thymus was reduced by the cortisone treatment. However, the reactivity to phytomitogens increased to a higher extent. During the subsequent regeneration of the organ the stimulability of the cells by phytomitogen decreased far below that of MF. The relative capacity of thymocytes to produce MF seemed to parallel their phytomitogen reactivities One possible explanation of the results is that there exists one subpopulation of cells in the thymus more responsive to phytomitogens than to MF and another more responsive to MF than to phytomitogen. It is possible that the cells that are phytomitogen-responsive are those that can produce MF.

    Notes: The mixed lymphocyte culture (MLC) response of lymphocytes from CBA mice injected with spleen cells from the H-2-compatible strain C3H was studied. The response of CBA lymphocytes against C3H cells was higher than that obtained against H-2-disparate strains Intravenous injection of C3H cells resulted in a markedly increased MLC response in lymph nodes but not in the thymus during the first 1 to 3 days Thereafter, the specific MLC response decreased drastically, far below that of nonimmunized animals. Reactivity was back to normal in the thymus after approximately 4 weeks but remained suppressed in lymph nodes for more than half a year. A decreased response was also noted in spleen, Peyer's patches, and the peripheral blood lymphocyte population Such a state of relative unresponsiveness was achieved by injecting as few as 104 C3H spleen cells. This exhaustion of the specific MLC response could not be explained by production of Mocking serum factors or of cells that can inhibit the MLC response. The strong MLC response obtained by lymphocytes from nonimmunized animals may be due to disparity at the newly detected M locus This antigenic system is characterized by strong MLC stimulatory capacity and no detectable production of humoral antibodies or development of effector cells capable of killing M antigen bearing cells A possible explanation of the results is that the CBA mice become chimaeric for a long time after injection of C3H cells. This prolonged exposure to a foreign transplantation antigen may lead to exhaustion of the specifically responsive lymphocytes.
