Abstract

The construction of various gene-deficient mice has facilitated the understanding of the role of various receptors and signaling pathways that control the generation of alphabeta lineage cells. A predominant role is occupied by the pre-TCR, which not only generates large numbers of alphabeta lineage cells but also controls TCRbeta allelic exclusion as well as commitment to the gammadelta lineage versus the alphabeta lineage.
