Abstract

A.TL mice injected with (A.AL × A.TL)F1 cells within 24 hours after birth were rendered tolerant to H-2Kk antigens, as evidenced by acceptance of A.TL skin grafts. When spleen cells from these tolerant animals were cocultured with A.AL stimulator cells, no cytotoxic effector cells were generated in a cell-mediated lympholysis assay. However, when the A.AL stimulator cells were derivatized with trinitrophenol, effector cells that displayed a cytotoxic effect against trinitrophenyl-modified H-2Kk target cells were generated. These data indicate that animals tolerant to H-2 determinants but chimeric to only a minor extent possess cytotoxic precursor cells in sufficient frequency to mount a primary in vitro response against trinitrophenol in the context of an allogeneic H-2K region.
