University Medicine, General Hospital, Southampton, UK cytokeratin (75%) and glial fibtillaty acidic protein (GFAP) (42%). In the present study it was determined that both ProTa and tNF-y were capable of inducing the expression of MHC ctass II and enhanced expression of CD-40 antigens on the surface of fetal human epithelial cells. Duling the cultivation of cells (96 h) in the present of IFN-y (250 U/ml) or ProTa (1O-6 M) the percentage of the surface antigens expression was equal to: HLA-DR 75% and 25%, CD-40 72% and 25%, respectively. In addiiion, it was obsenred that INF-y enhanced the CD-I 6 and CD-36 expression on the epithelial cells. Introduction:The high affinity IgE receptor (FcsRI), srcinally identified on mast cells and basophils, has also been found on antigen presenting cells, including skin Langemans cells and pulmonary dendrttic cells (DCs). Numbers of Fc&I+ DCs are elevated in the bronchial mucosa of atopic asthmatics compared to normal lungs. It is not known whether this increase reflects enhanced recfuit- ment of Fc#I+ DCs from the blood or whether FcsRl expression is induced upon DC migration into the tissue and subsequent in situ differentiation. To investigate ifthe local cytokine environment modulates FcERI expression, we have studied the effects of cytokines on the expression of this receptor during in vitro differentiation of DCs from CD34+ progenitors or from peripheral blood monocvtes. Conclusion: The result of this investigation indicates that a new normal and transformed human fetal epithelial cell lines could be used as an adequate model system to study the diierent aspects of immune response.

Weening, J. Aten. Department of Pathof Academic Medica/ Center, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands Matewials nd Methods To differentiate DCs from CD34+ progenitors, CD34+ cells were positively selected from human umbilical cord blood using magnetic cell sorting (MiniMACS), and were cultured in medium containing 5% human serum, recombinant human (rh) GM-CSF and rhSCF. Parallel cultures were supplemented with till-4 or rhTNFcr, or with both cytokines. After 7 or 14 days, cells were harvested and analysed: (1) by flow cytometry using mAbs against the a subunit of Fc&RI (FcsRI-cu) nd (2) by semi-quantitative RT-PCR to measure levels of transcripts for all 3 Fc&RI subunits (a, @ & y). To differ- entiate DCs from human monocytes, peripheral blood mononuclear cells were depleted of T cells, B cells and NK cells by immunomagnetic separation wkh mAbs against CD3, CD19 and CD16, respectively. Monocytes were cultured in the presence of rhlL-4 and rhGM-CSF for 5 days; further differentiation of the resulting DCs was induced by 24-46 h exposure to rhTNFa. Fc&RI expression was analysed as already described. Results: CD34+ progenitors differentiated in the presence of GM-CSF, SCF and TNFa yielded only low numbers of CD1 a+ DCs on which surface expression of FcsRla was not detected. Only (I and y subunit mRNA could be detected by RT-PCR. Cultures exposed to GM-CSF, SCF and IL-4 expressed transcripts for all 3 subunits although B subunits were expressed only at low levels. However, levels of Fc&RI-(x surface expression on CDla+ DCs in these cultures were again negligible. Only in cultures exposed to GM-CSF, SCF, TNFol and IL-4 could surface expression of FcsRla be detected. In monocyte-derived DCs, transclipts for Fc.sRI$J ould not be detected at the start of culture but appeared by day 2; after 5 days, a subpopulation of CDla+ DCs expressed cell surface FcsRla. Conclusion: In two in vitro systems, exposure to IL-4 duling DC differentia- tion is accompanied by the appearance of mRNA encoding F~ERI-b. Inclusion of TNFa further increases expression of transcripts for F-RI subunits with the appearance of surface FcERI-(Y n a subpopulation of CDla+ DCs. How this relates to DC maturation is currently under investigation. P.3.11.05 New eplthellal human cell lines of fetal srcin as target cells for prothymosin a and gamma interferon actlon G.K.

Sukhich I. ’ ntemationat institute of Biological Medicine, Russian Research Centre Ibr Perinatolog) Obstetdes and Gynaelog~ Moscow, Russia, 21nstitute of Immunological Engineering, Lyubuchany, Russia Introduction: CD134 (0X40), a TNF receptor family member expressed on activated T cells, is involved in T cell activation and IL-4 production, and in T cell- dependent antibody production. Until now, information on regulation of CD134 expression is limited. We examined expression of CD134 in HgClp-induced Th2-mediated systemic autoimmunity in the BN rat, and the regulation of CD134 expression in vitro. Materlals and Methods: Expression of CD134 was studied by tri-colour flowcytometry on T lymphocytes from BN rats at day 14 after the first injection of HgCI2. Furthermore, lymphnode cells from untreated BN rats were exposed to HgCI2, IL-4 and several other cytokines and T cell activating compounds in vifm; expression of CD134 on CD4+ lymphocytes was measured by flowcytometty, using propidium iodide for identification of dead cells. Results: CD134 expression was strongly increased on CD4+CD45RCb T lymphocytes in lymphnodes, spleen and peripheral blood from BN rats suffering from HgClp-induced autoimmunity. Exposure of lymphnode cells to HgCl2 in vitro induced a rapid increase of the fraction of CD134+ cells within the CD4+ cell population. Experiments using Con A or PMA and ionomycin revealed an early and parallel upregulation of CD134, CD25 and CD71. A dose-dependent increase of CD134 expression was induced by 11-4, but not by IFN-y or TNFa. The effect of IL-4, but not the effect of HgCl2, could be totally inhibited by an IL+blocking monoclonal antibody. Effects of IL-4 and PMA on CD134 expres- sion could be blocked by the protein kinase-inhibitor staurospottn. Combination of these stimuli with ionomycin resulted in a synergistic increase of CD134 ex- pression, which was blocked by cyclosportn A, an inhibitor of calcineuttn. HgC12 also synergized with PMA in increasing CD134 expression, but its effects were resistent to both cyclosporin A and staurosporin. Flow cytometric analysis of intracellular hiol levels revealed that all stimuli which increased CD134 expres- sion induced a decrease of thiol levels in CD4+ T cells, whereas CD4+CD134+ cells were relatively protected against thiol depletion induced by HgCl2 or IL-4. Conclusion: Optimal induction of CD134 expression requires protein kinase and calcineurin activity, and may involve modification of the redox balance. Furthermore, the data indicate that CD1 34 expression is favoumd in a ThP-type cytokine environment. h vivomodulation studies to investigate the relevance of the CD134-CD134L interaction for HgClp-induced systemic autoimmunity are currently underway.

In the same lime it is known that (ProTa) is a mediator of immune system, factor of differentiation of T-cell chain of immunity. In our previous research we have shown data abilities of recombinant analogue of (ProTa) in vitro. It was established, that (ProTa) induced the differentiation of eadv precursors of bone marrow cells to mature T-cell forms. The previous treaiment of man or mouse thymocytes lead to the ability of this cells to’respond on suboptimal dose of mitogen and alloantigens. Present work is devoted to studying the recombinant (ProTa) in vivo, its abilw in restoration of immune status of immunodeficient (nude) mice. M. Krulov& I, H. Havelkov& ‘, M. Kosaiovti ‘, V.

Lympho&tes of mouse strains BALB/cHeA (BALB/c) and STS/A (STS) differ in IL-2 induced proliferative response, STS being a high and BALB/c a low responder in the range of concentrations 125-2000 IE/ml. We analyzed the genetic basis of this strain difference using the Recombinant Congenic Strains (RCS) of the BALB/c-c-STS/Dem (CcS/Dem) series. Materials nd Methods: n the work nude mice (H-2d) were used. (ProTa) injected subcutaneously in dose 10, 50, 100 fig/ mouse. The first group of animals was injected for 5 and IO days, and then lymph node and spleen cells were tested on their ability to react on the presence of mitogens -ConA (2.5 &ml) and PHA (IO &ml). B-cell immunity was studied for the ability to genemte the plaque forming cells on T-dependent antigen (SRBC). Second group of animals after injection of (ProTa) for IO days was inoculated allogeneic (H-2b) tumour cells EL-4 (50 103 cells per mouse) and continued the injection of preparation for 15 days. MaterMs and Methods: cS/Dem series comprises 20 homozygous strains all derived from parental background strain BALB/c and parental donor strain STS. Each CcSIDem strain contains different, random set of approximately 12.5% genes of the donor strain STS and approximately 67.5% genes of the background strain BALB/c. Proliferative response was tested by lymphocyte proliferation assay, genolyping of simple sequence length polymorphism (SSLP) was done by PCR. The role of genetic factors in the proliferative response was examined by analysis of valiance (ANOVA, NCSS). Results: We analysed 540 F2 hybrids between one of the high responder RC strains, CcS-4, and the low responder parental strain BALB/c. We found that the response to high IL-2 concentrations is controlled by a loci Cindal (Cytokine induced activation I), on chromosome 11 near the marker DllMil4. The response to a lower dose of IL-2 tested on lymphocytes of the same mice was found to be controlled by another locus, Cinda2, in the centrometic part of chromosome 12 near the marker Dl2Mit37. Con&don: Identification of genetic factors like Cindal and Cinda2, that control T-cells unction and understanding their action Is expected to contribute to the efficient analysis of the genetic control of susceptibility to infections and autoimmune diseases as well as testing the possible role of their human homologues in responsiveness to cytokine immunotherapy. Reeults: The experiments carrying out have shown that (ProTa) induced the ability of lymph node cells of nude mice o react on the presence of mitogens after first 5 injections of the protein. The proliferate level of the lymphocytes increase in 6-10 times compared to control. The analogue testing after IO injections of (PmTa) defined the ability of splenocytes (group 100 &mouse) to respond on the mitogens use. The level of proliferation increase in 6-8 times compared to control. Studying of the humoral immune response on SRBC have shown practically its full restoration compared with normal (Balblc) mice. Studying the process of tumour development have shown, that injections of (ProTa) lead to significance slowing of tumour growth. The volume of tumour knot decrease in 2-3 times compared to control. Conclusion: The recombinant analogue of (PmTa) induced relatively restoration of cellular and humoral immunity of T-immunodeficieni mice and also enhanced the tumour growth resistance of an organism.

Furthermore, the CD4 putifed population retained the capacily to express spontaneoudy comparable levels of IL-10 to those observed for unfractionated LNC. CD4 depleted and CD8+ Results: Primary stimulation of CD4+CD45RA+ T cells, in the absence of 11-4, resulted in IFN-y and IL-5 production in all cultures and IL-4 production in 3 out of 7 adult (AD) and 4 out of 6 cord blood (CB)samples tested at day 6. All cultures produced IL4 on day 8 following a second stimulation (Mean f SD: AD, 446 i 606 pglml; CB, 2i5 f 251 p&ml). There were no significant differences n evels of individual cytoklnes between adult and cord T-cell cultures following repeated stimulation over 8 to 12 days of culture.
