Specific Membrane Lectin of Human T Suppressor Cells
Membrane lectins on murine lymphocytes have previously been described (1,2). They are sugar-specific receptors distributed on subpopulations of cells. Their presence has also been investigated on human peripheral blood leukocytes (3,4), where they are also distributed on distinct subpopulations. Furthermore, it could be shown that a suppressive effect on B cell immunoglobulin production can be inhibited by α-L-rhamnosyl derivatives (4–6).
