Nonsensitized lymphocytes produce leukocyte interferon when cultured with foreign cells

Academic Article


  • Nonsensitized human lymphocytes produce interferon when cultured with either transformed or normal heterologous cells. De novo RNA and protein synthesis was not required in a foreign cell for it to act as the inducer. The interferon produced has been characterized as being leukocyte type rather than immune or fibroblast type. © 1979.
