Abstract

The present study characterized the cytotoxic capabilities of human T lymphocyte subpopulations against human red blood cells (HRBC) and autologous lymphoid cells in an antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) assay. T cells bearing Fc receptors for immunoglobulin IgG (T(G)) were capable of lysis of antibody-coated HRBC and autologous lymphoid cells while T cells with surface Fc receptors for IgM (T(M)) displayed no ADCC activity T(G)-cell mediated ADCC could be inhibited by blockage of surface Fc receptors following treatment with aggregated Ig. Null cells and low-affinity E-rosette forming cells were also capable of similar ADCC activity against these targets.
