Abstract
DbcAMP helper cells, and it inhibits the function of macrophages. The stimulatory activity of DbcAMP to anti-SRBC and anti-POL responses is through inhibition of a .theta.-bearing regulator (or suppressor) cell. Removal of T cells by anti-.theta. treatment has the same effect on the anti-POL response as treatment with DbcAMP. In the absence of T cells, the enhanced anti-POL response was insensitive of DbcAMP treatment. The number of anti-SRBC AFC formed is probably regulated by the ratio of T helper to T regulator cells.
