Generation of natural killer-like activity in mixed lymphocyte-tumor cell cultures. II. Correlation between expression of HLA-DR antigens on the activated T cells and their cytotoxic capability.

Abstract

In this study, we investigated the role of DR antigens in human mixed lymphocyte reactions (MLR) at the responder cell level. Upon stimulation by allogeneic lymphocytes or leukemic cell lines, a large proportion of T cells underwent blastogenesis and began expressing DR antigens. Analysis by a fluorescence-activated cell sorter revealed that both subpopulations of large activated T cell blasts and of small T lymphocytes became DR+ by synthesis and/or uptake. Depletion of DR+ responder cells from 6-day-old MLRs by treatment with anti-DR monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) plus complement (C) reduced but did not completely abrogate the natural killer (NK)-like activity of the responder lymphocytes, suggesting that the MLR-induced cytotoxic cells include both DR+ and Dr- populations. The expression of NK-like activity by the responder cells was also greatly reduced upon addition of anti-DR mAbs (without C) at the start of the mixed cultures. This effect was observed regardless of the presence of DR antigens on the stimulator cells, indicating that the anti-DR mAbs can interact with the antigens present on both the stimulator and responder populations. These data show that during an MLR, the continued presence of DR antigens on the responding population is essential for the expression and maintenance of the proliferative and cytotoxic capabilities of these cells.
