Helper T cells:

• Express CD4 molecule on the cell surface.

• Recognize antigen peptides bound to class II MHC molecules (exogenous or ingested antigens).

• Provide help to B cells, macrophages and other T cell effector responses though the production of cytokines

Cytotoxic T cells:

• Express CD8 molecule on the cell surface.

• Recognize antigen peptides bound to class I MHC molecules (endogenously produced antigen such as viral antigen).

• Kill infected target cells.

Detection of ß-Galactosidase:

Upon addition of its chromogenic substrate, chlorophenol red galactoside (CPRG), ß-galactosidase hydrolyzes CPRG, turning it from a yellow color to purple at alkaline pH.

The color changs thus provide a convenient measure of gene transcription activities during T cell activation.

1. Mammalian cell culture:

Goal: learn how to count cells using a hemacytometer

Learn to grow mammalian cell lines

2. Signal transduction lab:

Examine the effects of various inhibitors and activators on

IL-2 expression.
