Gamma interferon production by bovine gamma delta T cells following stimulation with mycobacterial mycolylarabinogalactan peptidoglycan.

A large percentage of lymphocytes in the blood of cattle express the gamma delta T-cell receptor, but specific functions for these cells have not yet been clearly defined. There is evidence, however, that human, murine, and bovine gamma delta T cells have a role in the immune response to mycobacteria. This study investigated the ability of bovine gamma delta T cells to expand and produce gamma interferon (IFN-gamma) in response to stimulation with mycobacterial products. Bovine gamma delta T cells, isolated from the peripheral blood of healthy cattle, expanded following in vitro stimulation with live mycobacteria, mycobacterial crude cell wall extract, and Mycobacterium bovis culture filtrate proteins. In addition, purified gamma delta T cells, cocultured with purified monocytes and interleukin-2, consistently produced significant amounts of IFN-gamma in response to mycobacterial cell wall. The IFN-gamma-inducing component of the cell wall was further identified as a proteolytically resistant, non-sodium dodecyl sulfate-soluble component of the mycolylarabinogalactan peptidoglycan.[1]
