Relationship between human T cell functional heterogeneity and human T cell surface molecules.


Our knowledge of human T cell differentiation and function has expotentially increased during recent years. With this growth in knowledge there has been an increase in our appreciation of the complexity of the T-T interactions which initiate and control immune responses. A great deal remains to be learned concerning the mechanisms of these complex cellular interactions. In particular, it will be important to precisely understand the clear heterogeneity of functions within isolated subsets of OKT4+ and OKT8+ T cells. Perhaps, as importantly, it will be necessary to define more clearly the functions of the T4 and T8 molecules as well as the precise function of the other defined glycoproteins on the T cell surface. The evidence is clearly emerging that many of those molecules are not solely markers of unique functional subsets and are intimately involved in the functions of T cells.
