Helper T cell
T cell receptor
• 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.
NFAT Z Construct
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.
