Abstract

A mixed rosette technique with sheep red blood cells (SRBC) and ox erythrocytes heavily coated with rabbit antibody (EA) was employed to simultaneously identify human peripheral blood T lymphocytes and IgG receptor bearing cells. The findings of a noticeable proportion of 'mixed rosettes' in peripheral blood lymphocytes freshly drawn from normal individuals and of an even higher number of these mixed rosettes in cell suspensions kept in culture media supplemented with fetal calf serum provide evidence for the capacity of human T cells to express membrane receptors for antigen antibody complexes.
