Abstract

The discovery of CD40 and its ligand, gp39, have created new perspectives on the activation of resting B cells by TH cells. Here, Randolph Noelle, Jeffrey Ledbetter and Alejandro Aruffo describe how these molecules were characterized and, from recent findings, examine their relevance to immune activation.
