Abstract:

Pre-T cells migrate from the bone marrow into the thymus, where they mature. The most primitive T cells begin as double-negative thymocytes with no CD4 or CD8 on the cell surface. While characterization of the receptor genes is clearly important to understanding the selection process and other T-cell functions, the genes coding for the T-cell receptor (TcR) had eluded isolation. A technique of differential screening and molecular subtraction, favoring a subtraction approach partly because of previous use of the protocol to isolate virus-specific sequences is used. T-cell-specific genes involved in differentiation and function were simply set out to isolate. Encouraged by the results with the CD4 and CD8 knockout mice, researchers proceeded to generate mice lacking genes engaged in TcR-mediated signal transduction. From Howard Temin, the author learned that science has its own integrity and that one must work tirelessly, be innovative, and, above all, occasionally cherish an idea that does not attach itself to anything.
