CD1 recognition by mouse NK1+ T lymphocytes.

Rare major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I-like CD1-specific T cells have been isolated from human blood, but it has not been determined whether these clones are part of a defined subset of CD1-specific T cells selected during T cell development, or whether their recognition of CD1 is a fortuitous cross-reaction. In mice, an entire subset of alpha beta thymocytes with a unique phenotype was found to be CD1-specific. This particular subset, and its human counterpart, provide evidence that CD1 has a general role in selecting and interacting with specialized alpha beta T cells.
