In this study we have investigated the role of PGE2 in the activation of human T lymphocytes by PWM. A preincubation of these cells with molar concentrations of the prostaglandin ranging from 10(-9) M to 10(-4) M is able to reduce the expression of IL-2R and CD71 on T lymphocyte membrane during the first days of culture, while the DR molecule which is expressed later in the same experimental conditions is not affected by the treatment of T lymphocytes with PGE2. The PGE2-induced inhibition of IL-2R and CD71 well correlates with the reduction of 3H-thymidine incorporation by T cells, indicating that a preincubation of T lymphocytes with PGE2 profoundly affects the proliferative apparatus of these cells when they are stimulated by PWM.

Abstract

In this study we have investigated the role of PGE2 in the activation of human T lymphocytes by PWM. A preincubation of these cells with molar concentrations of the prostaglandin ranging from 10(-9) M to 10(-4) M is able to reduce the expression of IL-2R and CD71 on T lymphocyte membrane during the first days of culture, while the DR molecule which is expressed later in the same experimental conditions is not affected by the treatment of T lymphocytes with PGE2. The PGE2-induced inhibition of IL-2R and CD71 well correlates with the reduction of 3H-thymidine incorporation by T cells, indicating that a preincubation of T lymphocytes with PGE2 profoundly affects the proliferative apparatus of these cells when they are stimulated by PWM.
