Effects of alpha-galactosylceramide (KRN7000), interleukin-12 and interleukin-7 on phenotype and cytokine profile of human Valpha24+ Vbeta11+ T cells

Effects of alpha-galactosylceramide (KRN7000), interleukin-12 and interleukin-7 on phenotype and cytokine profile of human Valpha24+ Vbeta11+ T cells

Immunology 98(4): 557-563

The alpha-galactosylceramide KRN7000 was reported to be presented by CD1d to natural killer (NK) T cells, cells that are thought to play an important role in the rejection of malignant tumours and in the regulation of several autoimmune diseases. Here we analysed human peripheral blood (PB) NK T cells (Valpha24+ Vbeta11+ T cells) before and after a short-term culture in the presence of KRN7000.
