The CD2 ligand LFA-3 activates T cells but depends on the expression and function of the antigen receptor.

Abstract:

The T cell Ag receptor (CD3/Ti) and the sheep E receptor (CD2) expressed on the surface of human T cells are both capable of initiating intracellular signals necessary for T cell activation. CD3/Ti interacts with Ag to initiate cellular immune responses. Although the exact function of CD2 is unknown, lymphocyte function-associated Ag 3 (LFA-3), a 55- to 70-kDa receptor expressed on a broad spectrum of hemopoietic and nonhemopoietic cells, has recently been shown to be its natural ligand. We s...
