Reactive lymphocytes or variant lymphocytes are cytotoxic (CD8+) lymphocytes that become large as a result of antigen stimulation. Typically, they can be more than 30 µm in diameter with varying size and shape. The nucleus of a reactive lymphocyte can be round, elliptic, indented, cleft, or folded. The cytoplasm is often abundant and can be basophilic. Vacuoles and/or azurophilic granules are also sometimes present. Most often, the cytoplasm is gray, pale blue, or deep blue in colour. The distinctive cell associated with EBV or CMV is known as a "Downey cell", after Hal Downey, who contributed to the characterization of it in 1923. Reactive lymphocytes are usually associated with viral illnesses, but they can also be present as a result of drug reactions (such as phenytoin), immunizations, radiation, and hormonal causes (such as stress and Addisons disease), as well as some autoimmune disorders (such as rheumatoid arthritis). Some pathogen-related causes include: Epstein-Barr virus ...

Y1 - 2000/1/1. N2 - Evaluation of different types of K+ channel expression was performed in resting and PHA (phytohemagglutinine)-activated human peripheral lymphocytes (HPL) of healthy donors by means of flow cytometry. In resting peripheral lymphocytes, the application of kaliotoxin (a selective blocker for voltage-dependent K+ (K(V)) channels), K(V) resulted in pronounced depolarization of lymphocyte membrane potential, with further promotion in the presence of thapsigargin (compound discharging Ca(i) from endoplasmic reticulum). In activated HPL, the expression of various types of K+ channels was estimated utilizing cell-cycle analysis data. In contrast to the resting cells, kaliotoxin-induced depolarization of membrane potential in PHA-activated lymphocytes of the G0/G1 phase was not enhanced ...

Y1 - 2010/5/1. N2 - Arsenic is a widespread environmental toxicant with a diverse array of molecular targets and associated diseases, making the identification of the critical mechanisms and pathways of arsenic-induced cytotoxicity a challenge. In a variety of experimental models, over a range of arsenic exposure levels, apoptosis is a commonly identified arsenic-induced cytotoxic pathway. Human lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCL) have been used as a model system in arsenic toxicology for many years, but the exact mechanism of arsenic-induced cytotoxicity in LCL is still unknown. We investigated the cytotoxicity of sodium arsenite in LCL 18564 using a set of complementary markers for cell death pathways. Markers indicative of apoptosis (phosphatidylserine externalization, PARP cleavage, and sensitivity to ...
Background: There is a direct relation between C-reactive protein and leukocyte count as indicators of inflammation. The neutrophil lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is the balance between both cells and is considered a marker of low-grade inflammation and an indicator of high risk of cardiovascular events. An elevated NLR is related with type 2 diabetes (T2D), however, even when in type 1 diabetes (T1D) there is an underlying inflammatory process, an elevation of circulating neutrophils isn t observed. NLR is associated with hyperglycemia in adult patients with long-duration T2D. However, reports in pediatric populations with recent-onset type 1 (T1D) and T2D are scarce.. Objective and hypotheses: To evaluate the association between NLR and the degree of glycemic control in pediatric patients with recent-onset T1D and T2D vs healthy controls.. Method: Design: Analytical cross-sectional. Subjects 8 16 years of age were included, with T1D or T2D with diagnosis ≤ 3 months, who, with their guardians, signed ...

The prognostic significance of neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio at different time points in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma receiving liver resection
In medicine neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is used as a marker of subclinical inflammation. It is calculated by dividing the number of neutrophils by number of lymphocytes, usually from peripheral blood sample, but sometimes also from cells that infiltrate tissue, such as tumor. Higher NLR is independent predictor of mortality in patients undergoing angiography or cardiac revascularization. Increased NLR is associated with poor prognosis of various cancers, such as esophageal cancer or pancreatic cancer. Wang X (Mar 2014).

The effect of specific antigen on the development of physical interactions between lymph node lymphocytes (LNL) obtained from animals which had been immunized to that antigen and macrophages was examined. We found that the presence of antigen, either limited to the macrophage () or free in the medium, profoundly increased the degree of ) or free in the medium, profoundly increased the degree of Mphi-LNL interaction observed. This enhanced interaction was dependent on the coincidence in the cultures of Mphi bearing antigen and LNL from animals specifically immunized to that antigen. Although antigen-independent interactions developed equally well between syngeneic and allogeneic combinations of lymphocytes and macrophages, antigen mediated interactions required that macrophages and lymphocytes be syngeneic. Prolongation of antigen-mediated Mphi-LNL interactions resulted in the induction of LNL DNA synthesis, initially involving those lymphocytes physically associated with antigen-bearing Mphi. ...
The lymphocyte-high endothelial venule (HEV) cell interaction is an essential element of the immune system, as it controls lymphocyte recirculation between blood and lymphoid organs in the body. This interaction involves an 85-95-kD class of lymphocyte surface glycoprotein(s), CD44. A subset of lymphocyte CD44 molecules is modified by covalent linkage to chondroitin sulfate (Jalkanen, S., M. Jalkanen, R. Bargatze, M. Tammi, and E. C. Butcher. 1988. J. Immunol. 141:1615-1623). In this work, we show that removal of chondroitin sulfate by chondroitinase treatment of lymphocytes or incubation of HEV with chondroitin sulfate does not significantly inhibit lymphocyte binding to HEV, suggesting that chondroitin sulfate is not involved in endothelial cell recognition of lymphocytes. Affinity-purified CD44 antigen was, on the other hand, observed to bind native Type I collagen fibrils, laminin, and fibronectin, but not gelatin. Binding to fibronectin was studied more closely, and it was found to be ...
Different radiation-techniques in treating local staged prostate cancer differ in their dose- distribution. Physical phantom measurements indicate that for 3D, less healthy tissue is exposed to a relatively higher dose compared to SSIMRT. The purpose is to substantiate a dose distribution in lymphocytes in-vivo and to discuss the possibility of comparing it to the physical model of total body dose distribution. For each technique (3D and SSIMRT), blood was taken from 20 patients before and 10 min after their first fraction of radiotherapy. The isolated leukocytes were fixed 2 hours after radiation. DNA double-strand breaks (DSB) in lymphocytes nuclei were stained immunocytochemically using the gamma-H2AX protein. Gamma-H2AX foci inside each nucleus were counted in 300 irradiated as well as 50 non-irradiated lymphocytes per patient. In addition, lymphocytes of 5 volunteer subjects were irradiated externally at different doses and processed under same conditions as the patients lymphocytes in order to

BACKGROUND Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) was reported to be an independent easy-to-measure marker for many diseases, while the distribution of NLR in healthy population was not formally studied. So we investigated NLR in healthy people in this study. METHODS Data include NLR, systolic pressure, diastolic pressure, and body mass index (BMI), which were collected from 3,262 healthy population. Correlations of NLR with variables were analyzed with SPSS16.0. RESULTS Results demonstrated that NLR was positively associated with age (P | 0.001). The eldest age group possessed the highest NLR and the youngest age group had the lowest NLR. NLR was also slightly positively associated with systolic pressure, diastolic pressure, and BMI (P | 0.001). CONCLUSION Older people possessed relatively high NLR in healthy population.

Lymphocyte and plasma cell disorders can be classified into three major groups (Table 78-1). The first group, listed under "primary disorders," is composed of lymphocyte disorders caused by intrinsic defects in lymphoid cells that result in functional abnormalities of marrow-derived (B) lymphocytes, thymic-derived (T) lymphocytes, combined T and B (impaired humoral and cellular immunity), or natural killer (NK) cells. These disorders primarily result from inborn errors in lymphocyte metabolism (Chaps. 73 to 77 and 80) and/or receptor-ligand expression (Chaps. 17 and 80). The second group, listed under "acquired disorders," consists of disorders caused by factors extrinsic to lymphocytes resulting in immune dysfunction. These conditions most commonly result from infection with viruses, or other cellular pathogens (Chaps. 79, 81, and 82), but they also may be caused by bacteria, drugs or systemic disease of nonlymphoid cells. The third group of diseases is composed of preneoplastic and neoplastic ...
Two small lymphocyte subpopulations from human peripheral blood were produced by rosette sedimentation procedures, and tested for in vitro functions by stimulation with mitogens, PPD and allogeneic lymphocytes, and for effector capacities in ADCC. The non-T, non-Fc subpopulation had previously been found to be a SmIg+ fraction which did not aquire new surface markers during unstimulated culture, did not respond to mitogens, PPD or allogeneic cells but were potent MLC stimulators. In addition, they were poor ADCC effector cells. The non-T, non-B (Null) cells, which showed varying surface marker profiles from donor to donor, were able to respond to mitogens and PPD, but were weak MLC responders. Potent ADCC effector capacity was, however, found to be exhibited by this subpopulation. ...
FTY720 (Fingolimod) reduces multiple sclerosis disease activity by inducing lymphopenia and inhibiting lymphocyte re-entry from lymph nodes. Peripheral lymphocyte reconstitution following drug discontinuation has been considered relatively rapid (2-4weeks), based on short-term studies. Authors investigated the kinetics of lymphocyte reconstitution in MS patients in open label extension phases of FTY720 clinical trials who discontinued therapy after prolonged use (,1-5years), and examined histological features of a mediastinal lymph node obtained from a lymphopenic FTY720 patient. Although three patients showed reconstitution of peripheral lymphocytes within the predicted timeline, two patients continued to be lymphopenic 9 and 34months after therapy cessation. Lymph nodes from the latter patient showed preserved architecture. Notwithstanding preserved lymph node integrity, time for lymphocyte reconstitution after prolonged FTY720 therapy can be significantly greater than predicted by ...
NFAT2 null mutant mice die in utero of cardiac failure, precluding analysis of the role of NFAT2 in lymphocyte responses. Only the NFAT2-/-/Rag-1-/- chimeric mice model gave insight into the role of NFAT2 transcription factor in T lymphocyte development, activation and differentiation. As reports are mainly focused on the role of NFAT2 in CD4+ T lymphocytes activation and differentiation, we decided to investigate NFAT2s impact on CD8+ T lymphocytes responses. We report that NFAT2 is phosphorylated and inactive in the cytoplasm of naive CD8+ T cells, and upon TCR stimulation is dephosphorylated and translocated into the nucleus. To study the role of NFAT2 in CD8+ T responses we employed NFAT2fl/flCD4-Cre mice with NFAT2 deletion specifically in T cells. Interestingly, the absence of NFAT2 in T cells resulted in increased percentage of nonconventional innate-like CD8+ T cells. These cells were CD122+, rapid producer of IFN-γ and had characteristics of conventional memory CD8+ T cells. We also observed
Accurate monitoring of host immunity is hampered by the flaws of conventional tests. The relationship between lymphocyte number and function is unknown. The function of lymphocytes was analyzed based on IFN-γ secretion assay. Lymphocyte number and function was investigated in individuals under various states. The number of CD4+ and CD8+ T cells was gradually decreased, whereas the function of them was gradually increased with increasing age. A significantly negative correlation existed between the number and function of both CD4+ and CD8+ T cells. Differently, both the number and function of NK cells are maintained at a high level after birth. Staying up all night was found to impair the function of CD4+, CD8+ T cells, or NK cells. Lymphocyte number and function were both decreased in patients with immunosuppressive conditions or opportunistic infections, while the opposite phenomenon was observed in patients with some autoimmune
The cross-linking of human peripheral lymphocyte surface Ig results in an early association of cyclic adenosine 3:5-monophosphate (cAMP) and the cell surface Ig patches. Examination of the subsequent stages of cap formation reveals the continued relationship of cAMP and the clustered surface Ig. In addition, the generalized influx of calcium produced by the ionophore A-23187 disrupts human lymphocyte caps. During the process of cap dissolution cAMP is still associated with surface Ig. Therefore, it is hypothesized that the localized concentration of cyclic nucleotide and calcium ion regulates the movement of cell surface constituents by coordinating the function of the cells contractile and structural elements. ...
Chemoattractants control lymphocyte recruitment from the blood, contributing to the systemic organization of the immune system. The G protein-linked receptor GPR15 mediates lymphocyte homing to the large intestines and skin. Here we show that the 9 kDa CC-motif containing cationic polypeptide AP57/colon-derived SUSD2 binding factor (CSBF), encoded by C10orf99 in the human and 2610528A11Rik in the mouse, functions as a chemokine ligand for GPR15 (GPR15L). GPR15L binds GPR15 and attracts GPR15-expressing T cells including lymphocytes in colon draining lymph nodes and Vγ3+ thymic precursors of dermal epithelial T cells. Patterns of GPR15L expression by epithelial cells in adult mice and humans suggest a homeostatic role for the chemokine in lymphocyte localization to the large intestines, as well as a role in homing to the epidermis during wound healing or inflammation. GPR15L is also significantly expressed in squamous mucosa of the oral cavity and esophagus with still poorly defined regulation.

We experienced a case exhibiting various autoimmune disorders. The percentage of double negative T cells (2.75% of TCRαβ+ T lymphocytes; 2.18% of total lymphocytes) met the diagnostic criteria for ALPS (ie, more than 2.5% of TCRαβ+ lymphocytes and 1.5% of total lymphocytes, respectively). The patients serum levels of IgG (1018 mg/dL), IgM (63 mg/dL), IgA (81 mg/dL), vitamin B12 (309 pg/mL; normal range, 233-914), soluble FASL (449.82 pg/mL; normal range, 451.6 ± 35.7), and interleukin (IL)-10 (6.49 pg/mL; normal range, 8.6 ± 9.6) were not elevated. However, there was a modest elevation in the patients IL-18 level (520.0 pg/mL; normal range, 126.0 ± 44.5). The relative proportion of lymphocyte subpopulation was within the normal range (T cells [CD3+CD19−], 73.1%; B cells [CD3−CD19+] 14.7%). Finally, the diagnosis of ALPS was denied, based on the findings of FAS-dependent apoptosis4,9 and mutational screening of FAS and FAS-L were negative. We also conducted genomic sequencing of ...
latforms comprising at least one lymphocyte affecting molecule and at least one molecular complex that, when bound to an antigen, engages a unique clonotypic lymphocyte receptor can be used to induce and expand therapeutically useful numbers of specific lymphocyte populations. Antigen presenting platforms comprising a T cell affecting molecule and an antigen presenting complex can induce and expand antigen-specific T cells in the presence of relevant peptides, providing reproducible and economical methods for generating therapeutic numbers of such cells. Antibody inducing platforms comprising a B cell affecting molecule and a molecular complex that engages MHC-antigen complexes on a B cell surface can be used to induce and expand B cells that produce antibodies with particular specificities.

Lymphocytes in peripheral blood (circulation) are heterogeneous and can be broadly classified into T cells, B cells, and natural killer (NK) cells. There are various subsets of each of these individual populations with specific cell-surface markers and function. This assay provides absolute (cells/mcL) and relative (%) quantitation for the main categories of T cells, B cells, and NK cells, in addition to a total lymphocyte count (CD45+). Each of these lymphocyte subpopulations have distinct effector and regulatory functions and are maintained in homeostasis under normal physiological conditions. Each of these lymphocyte subsets can be identified by a combination of one or more cell surface markers. The CD3 antigen is a pan-T cell marker, and T cells can be further divided into 2 broad categories, based on the expression of CD4 or CD8 coreceptors. B cells can be identified by expression of CD19, while NK cells are typically identified by the coexpression of CD16 and CD56.. The absolute counts of ...

These findings are also consistent with the genes affected in CTCF patient lymphocytes, where highly expressed genes involved in response to stimuli were expressed at lower levels in patients than in controls [19]; a pattern which suggests that those patient genes were not able to be sufficiently induced in response to stimuli. In contrast to these patient lymphocyte findings, a recent study in which CTCF was knocked down in HEK293T cells found very little effect on global gene expression [40]. However, if CTCF loss primarily affects gene induction, such an effect would only be detected if the cells were additionally provided with transcription-inducing stimuli. Notably, in the CTCF patient lymphocytes, the affected genes were primarily involved in response to wounding, inflammation and bacterial defense [19], all processes that can be expected to be activated in lymphocytes in blood drawn from human individuals.. The enclosure of the regulatory domains of stimulus response genes is consistent ...

Infection by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is characterized by a progressive depletion of CD4 T lymphocytes, which leads to dysfunction of the immune system. Although a variety of mechanisms may contribute to the gradual T cell decline that occurs in HIV-infected patients, abnormal apoptosis of infected or bystander T lymphocytes is an important event leading to immunodeficiency. The HIV envelope glycoprotein plays a crucial role in HIV associated apoptosis through both death receptor-mediated and mitochondria-dependent pathways. This review summarizes current knowledge of Env-mediated T lymphocyte apoptosis.
Introduction. Recent research shows that programmed cell death has great importance in the pathomechanism of atherosclerosis. The BIRC5 and BIRC6 genes belong to Class III IAPs with the anti-apoptotic effect. The proteins display multidirectional action. According to the available literature, in addition to the effect of apoptosis inhibition they also display other properties. It is suggested that they play an important role in the processes of proliferation and cellular differentiation. Aim. The aim of the study was to assess the expression of the BIRC5 and BIRC6 genes in normal peripheral blood lymphocytes and in peripheral blood lymphocytes of patients diagnosed with atherosclerosis. Material and methods. The analysis was carried out on RNA samples obtained from peripheral blood lymphocytes of 21 patients with diagnosed atherosclerosis. The specific fragment of the analysed gene was obtained through amplification with the use of cDNA synthesised in the reaction of reverse transcription. The ...

Background: Systemic inflammatory response was shown to play an important role in development andprogression of many cancer types and different inflammation-based indices were used for determining prognosis.We aimed to investigate the prognostic effects of neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and prognostic nutritionalindex (PNI) in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Materials and Methods: NSCLC patientsdiagnosed in our institution were retrospectively reviewed. Demographic and clinicopathologic characteristicswere recorded. NLR and PNI was calculated before the application of any treatment. Results: A total of 138patients were included in the study. Patients were divided into two groups according to NLR (|3.24 or ≥3.24)and PNI (|49.5 or ≥49.5). While median overall survival was 37.0 (95% CI 17.5-56.5) months in the group withlow NLR, it was calculated as 10.0 (95%CI 5.0-15.0) months in the group with high NLR (p|0.0001).

The S1P-S1P1 signaling axis represents one of the most critical regulators of lymphocyte trafficking, yet little is known about the in vivo dynamics of S1P1 in response to ligand binding. Studies have identified a cyclical pattern of lymphocyte S1P1 expression: increased in lymphoid organs, decreased or absent in peripheral circulation. However, the signaling properties within this pattern, i.e., whether S1P1 surface expression is a necessary determinant of lymphoid residence, have been difficult to elucidate in the in vivo context. The diversity of GPCR signal regulation further complicates the issue. Agonist-induced internalization of GPCRs is believed to be important in a variety of signaling modalities (Hanyaloglu and von Zastrow, 2008; Marchese et al., 2008). In the case of some receptors, cells become unresponsive to agonists after a significant fraction of receptors are internalized (Vroon et al., 2006). Additionally, endocytosed receptors may carry out unique signaling functions in the ...

Abstract:. The role of the different lymphocyte populations in liver microenvironment of chronic hepatitis C (CHC) patients is still matter of debate. Since Th17 and Treg have opposite functions, their balance could affect disease progression. The aim was to explore liver microenvironment and its peripheral blood counterpart in adult CHC patients. CD4+ lymphocytes were predominant in the liver, with high Foxp3+ but low IL-17A+ frequency. IL-17A+ lymphocytes and IL-17A+/Foxp3+ ratio displayed association with advanced fibrosis (p = 0.0130; p = 0.0236, respectively), while Foxp3+ lymphocytes and IL-10 expression level inversely correlated with fibrosis severity (p = 0.0381, p = 0.0398, respectively). TGF-β/IL-6 ratio correlated with IL-17A+/Foxp3+ ratio (p = 0.0036, r = 0.5944) and with IL-17A+ lymphocytes (p = 0.0093; r = 0.5203). TNF-α and TGF-β were associated with hepatitis severity (p = 0.0409, p = 0.0321). Peripheral blood lymphocyte frequency was not associated with liver damage. There ...

In normal individuals, the BB3 mAb reacted with ~2/3 of peripheral blood CD3+WT31- lymphocytes, whereas δ-TCS-1 stained ~1/3 of such cells. In addition, the sum of the percentages of BB3+ and δ-TCS-1+ cells approximated the percentages of peripheral blood CD3+WT31- lymphocytes in seven normal donors tested. Also, in peripheral blood-derived polyclonal CD3+WT31- populations, cultured in IL-2, cells reacting with one or another mAb accounted for the whole cell population. On the other hand, only δ-TCS-1-reactive cells, ...
The SHR has an atrophied thymus and suppressed indices of immune function with extensive lymphocyte apoptosis. Adrenalectomy in the SHR reduces apoptotic death rates of lymphocytes in the thymus. Supplementation with a glucocorticoid enhances the apoptosis in the thymus and several other organs. The process may involve DNA binding of the glucocorticoid receptor. Glucocorticoids disrupt mitochondrial transmembrane potentials, deplete nonoxidized glutathione levels, increase the production of reactive oxygen species, elevate cytosolic free Ca2+ levels and produce nuclear and cytoplasmic shape changes. There is evidence for oxygen free radical involvement in early apoptosis of dexamethasone-treated splenocytes and SHR smooth muscle cells.. Was this article helpful?. ...
A T cell, or T lymphocyte, is a type of lymphocyte (a subtype of white blood cell) that plays a central role in cell-mediated immunity. T cells can be distinguished from other lymphocytes, such as B cells and natural killer cells, by the presence of a T-cell receptor on the cell surface. They are ca
The effects of interferons (IFNs) on lymphocyte adhesion to cultured human vascular endothelial cells (EC) were investigated using an in vitro assay. Endothelial cells obtained from umbilical vein were first cultured at a low density with a conditioned medium (CM) from 12-O-tetra decanoylphorbol 13-acetate-concanavalin A (TPA-Con A) stimulated human peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL), or with recombinant (r) gamma interferon (IFN-gamma) or r alpha interferon (IFN-alpha), and then were incubated with freshly isolated PBL. Natural IFN-gamma in the TPA-Con A CM and rIFN-gamma (12.5-500 U/ml) induced major histocompatibility complex-class II antigens (HLA-DR, HLA-DP, and HLA-DQ) and significant lymphocyte adhesion to the EC, whereas rIFN-alpha did not. The lymphocyte adhesion to the EC and the expression of DR antigens on the EC were well correlated in terms of both kinetics and the dose-response pattern of rIFN-gamma. When EC expressing I region associated (Ia) antigen were preincubated with ...
Hodgkin lymphoma is caused by a change (mutation) in the DNA of a type of white blood cell called B lymphocytes, although the exact reason why this happens isnt known.. The DNA gives the cells a basic set of instructions, such as when to grow and reproduce. The mutation in the DNA changes these instructions so the cells keep growing, causing them to multiply uncontrollably.. The abnormal lymphocytes usually begin to multiply in one or more lymph nodes in a particular area of the body, such as your neck or groin. Over time, its possible for the abnormal lymphocytes to spread into other parts of your body, such as your: ...
With lower CD4 counts, HIV-infected patients may not be able to produce dendritic cells and lymphocytes, special types of immune cells that generate HIV-specific CTLs. Infusion of CTLs generated from the dendritic cells and lymphocytes of an HIV-negative sibling may enable the body to recognize HIV more readily and increase immune response against the virus.. Dendritic cells and lymphocytes are obtained from an HIV-negative sibling. HIV-specific CTLs are generated from these cells and then infused into the HIV-infected patient monthly for 6 months. Siblings must be able to donate on multiple occasions, and patients are followed every 2-4 weeks during the study. Patients are screened over 3 months prior to study entry. ...

Chronic renal failure (CRF) causes immunosuppresion in humans and is thought to be one of the causes of noninfectious secondary immunosuppression in dogs. Hematological, biochemical, and immunological examinations were performed on blood samples obtained from dogs in various stages of CRF. The number of dogs with lymphopenia increased with the progression of clinical signs. All main subsets of lymphocytes were decreased, but more considerable reduction was detected in B-cells, Tc-cells, and NK cells. Depressed lymphocyte response to concanavalin A and pokeweed mitogen was found in dogs with severe clinical signs and lymphopenia. Our results, showing impaired immunological functions, are similar to results obtained from uremic humans, suggesting that infection may be an important complication in dogs with CRF ...

The precursors of all blood cells, including immune cells such as lymphocytes, are produced in the bone marrow. Certain cells will become part of the group of lymphocytes, while others will become part of another type of immune cells known as phagocytes. Once the lymphocytes are initially formed, some will continue to mature in the bone marrow and become "B" cells. Other lymphocytes will finish their maturation in the thymus and become "T" cells. B and T cells are the two major groups of lymphocytes which recognize and attack infectious microorganisms.. Once mature, some lymphocytes will be housed in the lymphoid organs, while others will travel continuously around the body through the lymphatic vessels and bloodstream.. ...

Lymphocytes are white blood cells which are necessary to eliminate disease. The high lymphocyte count can be considered normal if the condition is temporary, however never disregard the hidden conditions for it may show severe illness such as leukemia or AIDS.
A relevant finding of this work is the strong positive correlation between the resting [Ca2+]c and [Na+]c in lymphocytes from a heterogeneous human population. This was observed in both men and women. Such a finding strongly suggests that [Na+]c and therefore the NCE play important roles in the regulation of the resting [Ca2+]c in human lymphocytes. Other related findings of interest are observations that the resting [Ca2+]c was strongly correlated with NCE in both men and women, suggesting that as [Ca2+]c rises, adaptive mechanisms are initiated to enhance Ca2+ extrusion through the NCE. This is probably mediated by the upregulation of NCE expression, since in the present investigation we examined the activity of NCE (in a reverse mode) at high (1 mmol/L) Ca2+ concentration, reflecting the maximal reaction velocity of the exchanger. Such a concept awaits proof by direct quantification of NCE protein.. Until recently it has been difficult to show the presence of NCE activity in human ...

Purified helper-inducer (T4+) and suppressor-cytotoxic (T8+) lymphocytes from eight patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and eight healthy heterosexual donors were examined by limiting dilution analysis for their ability to be clonally expanded. It was demonstrated that viable T4+ and T8+ lymphocytes from patients with AIDS had markedly reduced proportions of clonable cells compared to the healthy donors (T4 = 1:255 vs. 1:34, P = 0.06; T8 = 1:355 vs. 1:55, P = 0.01). However, the cloned T cells that were obtained from the patients with AIDS demonstrated normal proliferation in response to phytohemagglutinin and alloantigen, and normal ability to help or suppress pokeweed mitogen-driven IgG synthesis. These results strongly suggest that, in addition to a quantitative diminution of T4+ lymphocytes in AIDS, there is an intrinsic functional defect in the surviving T4+ and T8+ lymphocytes, which is reflected by a severe decrease in their potential for clonal expansion. ...

The researchers report that variations in the structure and expression of a subset of genes belonging to the SLAM/CD2 family may contribute to autoimmunity in mice with lupus. Scientists have known for some time that SLAM/CD2 genes play a critical role in controlling immune cells and responses. Evidence presented here suggests that the altered SLAM/CD2 members may be responsible for abnormal lymphocyte responses. The Ly108 gene, which is expressed at elevated levels in lymphocytes from lupus susceptible mice, has emerged as a likely contributor to abnormal immune activation. However, Ly108 and other SLAM/CD2 genes are thought to act in combination with additional genes and signaling molecules in these mice and further research is needed to identify the specific interactions that lead to an overzealous immune response ...

UC San Diego scientists explain how and when T cells become effector or memory lymphocytes. Using technologies and computational modeling that trace the destiny of single cells, researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine describe for the first time the earliest stages of fate determination among white blood cells called T lymphocytes, providing new insights that may help drug developers create more effective, longer-lasting vaccines against microbial pathogens or cancer.. The findings are published in the March 2, 2014 online issue of Nature Immunology.. Naïve T lymphocytes patrol the front lines of the human bodys defense against infection, circulating in blood and tissues, searching for invasive microbes and other foreign antigens. Theyre called "naïve" because they have not yet encountered an invader. When they do, these T cells activate and divide, giving rise to two types of daughter cells: "effector lymphocytes" responsible for immediate host defense and ...

From Nature Biotechnology Press Release.) Current estimates predict that genome sequencing efforts may reveal between 3,000 and 10,000 new targets for drugs. In the December issue of Nature Biotechnology, Paul Negulescu and colleagues describe a rapid and sensitive assay for identifying such gene targets in live human cells. In their approach, a reporter gene encoding β-lactamase was introduced into human T lymphocytes in an attempt to tag virtually every gene in the genome. When these cells were exposed to phorbol ester-a chemical that primes T lymphocytes for action against foreign agents-gene sequencing revealed 10 tagged genes that had previously never been linked with lymphocyte activation. By rapidly selecting and enriching cells containing these genes using a method called flow cytometry, it should be possible to develop screens for rapidly assessing drug candidates.. Negulescus team were able to assess the T lymphocyte genes that responded to phorbol ester by measuring expression ...
