  • Further, the reversal of the CTLA-4 block with CD3/CD28 ligation was accompanied by an increase in surface raft expression and associated LAT. (rupress.org)
  • In this context, CD28 coengagement can induce raft expression under conditions where TcR ligation failed to achieve this event, and has been reported to promote the colocalization of rafts with TcR complexes ( 24 ). (rupress.org)
