To study the possibility of B7.1/B7.2-CTLA4 mediated T-T interactions and the predicted induction of T cell apoptosis in vitro, co-stimulatory molecules were up-regulated on CD4+ and CD8+ T cells by mitogen stimulation," wrote scientists at North Carolina State University.
"B7.1 expression on in vitro stimulated CD4+ and...
