Human alloreactive proliferating T cell clones have been compared for their capacity to provide help for B cell activation and the generation of a specific cytotoxic response. The results demonstrate that, when triggered by the relevant alloantigen, the same T cell clone can induce a strong polyclonal B cell activation and serve as the only source of helper cells for the generation of a specific cytotoxic response by any source of CTL precursors against any stimulator cell present in culture.
