Human T lymphocytes bearing receptors for the Fc portion of rabbit IgG [Tγ ] and rabbit IgM [Tµ ] have been identified (1,2). The Tµ subclass appears to help B-cell differentiation induced by pokeweed mitogen. Tγ cells after interaction with IgG immune complexes suppress B-cell differentiation (3).
